Configuring E-mail Settings
Use the Email Configuration Parameters screen to configure e-mail settings. You can validate your e-mail setup by clicking the Verify button. The process for configuring e-mail settings in QXO is the same as that in QXI.
Note: Before configuring e-mail settings, ensure that access is available to the SMTP server.
In the QXO Console click the Configuration tab.
Click the Email Alerts node in the left-hand tree view. If it was not already displayed, the Email Configuration Parameters screen displays.
Email Configuration Parameters
Enter the following values as required.
Specify the address of the SMTP server used to deliver the alerts.
Specify the port number used to access the SMTP server.
Specify the address to use in the “From:” in the header of the e-mail message. This field is required.
Specify the pause time before next check when the service does not detect any e-mail to be sent.
Select this option if the SMTP server to be used requires authentication. When this check box is selected, the User Name and Password fields display.
If authentication is required, specify a user name.
If authentication is required, specify a user password.
Select this option to activate e-mail alerts and to create the
e-mail service. No e-mail alerts will be distributed unless this option is selected.
Note: If this option is not selected alerts will still be stored in qxodb.
Click to validate the SMTP configuration settings. The Recipient dialog displays.
Enter an e-mail address in the Recipient field and click OK. If the SMTP server is available and can be communicated with, a success message is sent to the specified address and a message appears on the Recipient dialog. If the setup is incorrect—or if the SMTP server cannot be communicated with—an error message displays.
