Configuring SMTP

You can set up a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server to send email notifications of management module events.

To specify the IP address or host name of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server, complete the following steps.
Note: If you plan to set up an SMTP server for email alert notifications, make sure that the name in the Name field in the MM Information section of the MM Control → General Settings page is valid if used as part of an email address (for example, there are no spaces).
  1. Log in to the management module on which you want to configure SMTP. For more information, see Starting the management-module web interface.
  2. In the navigation pane, click MM Control → Network Protocols, and scroll down to the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) section.

  3. In the SMTP server host name or IP address field, type the host name of the SMTP server. Use this field to specify the IP address or, if DNS is enabled and configured, the host name of the SMTP server.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.
