Your server can be configured to generate an automatic e-mail notification when an alert is raised. You can choose to be notified when any type of alert is raised or only for specific alert types, such as informational, warning, or critical alerts.
This feature uses the SMTP service to send e-mail. In a normal Internet environment, you do not need to configure an SMTP gateway. However, to send e-mail to Microsoft® Exchange Server or Lotus Notes, you need to provide the name of the specific SMTP gateway. You must put the SMTP gateway server name, or IP address, in the SMTP server field in the Web user interface (UI). Contact your Microsoft Exchange administrator for the server name of the SMTP gateway.
Note SMTP is required for alert e-mail. If the SMTP service is not installed on this server, these procedures are not available.
To enable the alert e-mail feature
You may have alert e-mail sent to multiple addresses, simply type the addresses into the To box, separated by a comma.
After clicking the Test button, test e-mail is sent. If the SMTP service is not installed on your computer, or there is no network cable, you will receive the error message "Test e-mail cannot be sent out."
If you do not receive the test e-mail at all, even though the message "Test e-mail has been sent out. Please check administrator's mailbox" has been displayed in the Web UI, the error has most likely been caused by the SMTP server. To clear this error, reset the SMTP server name.
