Email Settings

E-mail

The settings on this page are:

  • “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.

    You can set custom “From” Email address to be used as the From field of all e-mail messages sent using the primary mail server: regular reports, e-mail alerts, network discovery reports reports, and so on. When it is not set, “To” address is used as the “From” e-mail message field. In either case actual “From” field is available as $AdminFrom while configuring monitors or alerts.

  • Alternate mail server (SMTP) – is an SMTP server name, port number, “From” Email address, 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.

    You can set custom “From” Email address to be used as the From field of all e-mail messages sent using the alternate mail server. When it is not set, “To” address is used as the “From” e-mail message field. In either case actual “From” field is available as $AdminFromAlternative while configuring monitors or alerts. Use custom “From” address when SMTP server requires “From” to belong to its own domain and “To” address is from another domain.

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):
