Configure Mail Server


Mail servers are configured to send e-mails to desired destinations. For instance, when you perform an action to send e-mail for some alarms, you need to configure mail server through which mails are sent. You can configure the mail server using two different connection protocols. You can choose any one based on your requirement.

Configuring the Mail Server using SMTP protocol:

  1. In the Applications Manager console, navigate to Settings → Product Settings → Connectivity → Mail Server and proceed to Configure Mail Server.
  2. Choose SMTP Connection Protocol.
  3. Choose the Authentication Type.

    If you choose Basic Authentication type:

    1. Provide the SMTP Server name  and the SMTP Server Port number.
    2. Provide the EMail Address . It will be used as the Sender address when configuring actions.
    3. Provide the Username and Password, if the SMTP server requires authentication details (Select the checkbox).

    If you choose OAuth Authentication type:

    1. Provide the SMTP Server name  and the SMTP Server Port number.
    2. Provide the EMail Address . It will be used as the Sender address when configuring actions.

Enter telnet smtp.gmail.com 465 (or 587) and check for any response.In case you fail to receive a response, we recommend contacting your system administrator to get the access.
