Sending email notifications from the Appliance

Sending email notifications from the Appliance

For the Engine and the Portal to send alert notifications via email, configure the SMTP settings of the Appliance by using the Web Console:

  1. Open a web browser, go to the Web Console and log in as admin:
    https://<IP_address_of_Appliance>:99
  2. In the Appliance tab, select SMTP from the menu on the left-hand side. The Web Console displays the Appliance SMTP configuration.
    • If no mail account is present, click the circled plus sing in the bottom right corner of the widget to add a new account.
    • If a mail account is already set up, click the circled e to edit the account or the cicled cross to remove it and then proceed from the previous step.
  3. Set the account data:
    1. Type in the IP address and port of the SMTP server to use.
    2. Check the box TLS if your mail server requires encrypted communication. The Appliance only supports STARTTLS as the mechanism to establish an encrypted mail channel.
    3. Type in the Sender email account that will send emails on behalf of your Engine or Portal.
    4. Type in the user Login and Password for the email account if the SMTP server requires authentication.
    5. Optional: Type in your email address in the field Test e-mail and click the button Send test e-mail to check your settings. If they are correct, you should receive an email message from the Appliance in a short time.
  4. Click Save to make your changes permanent.
