Email Settings

E-mail

The settings on this page are:

  • “From” Email address – will be used as the From field of all e-mail messages sent by IPHost Network Monitor (regular reports, e-mail alerts, logon failure reports, and so on). You can refer to this address as $AdminFrom while configuring monitors or alerts.

  • “To” Email address – is an address to which regular reports and notifications are sent. You can refer to this address as $AdminMail while configuring monitors or alerts.

  • Primary mail server (SMTP) – is an SMTP server name, port number, and optional credentials. You can specify a secure connection (TLS/TLS if available, SSL). A default port is assigned for every choice, unless you choose a non-standard port.

  • Alternate mail server (SMTP) – is an SMTP server name, port number, and optional credentials. The alternate server is optional; if present, it is used when the primary server fails to send a message. You can specify a secure connection (TLS/TLS if available, SSL). A default port is assigned for every choice, unless you choose a non-standard port.

To check whether the SMTP server settings are correct you can send a test email alert. To do this press the Send test email alert button. In the dialog displayed you will see a log of communication between IPHost Network Monitor and the SMTP server with a message stating the result (successful or failed):
