Enable your DCE server to send e-mail notifications.
This option has two tabs (one for the Primary SMTP server, one for the Backup), each with the same elements, as well as the From address field definition used for Data Center Expert server e-mail notifications.
These settings are used by the Data Center Expert server to send email alarm notifications for monitored SNMP and Modbus devices, and for email messages related to Data Center Expert server functions, such as storage disk status and repository purge messages.
Email notifications for Data Center Expert server system events are sent in batches every two minutes. These notifications repeat every five minutes, then every ten minutes, then every hour until the event clears. No notification is sent when the event clears.
Note: Up to a two-minute delay in sending a notification is possible, depending upon when the event occurred, or when the notification should repeat, in relation to the interval at which email notifications are sent.
Select Secure SMTP (Requires STARTTLS extension) to use the Secure SMTP protocol for communication between the Data Center Expert and SMTP servers.
Select Requires Logon to define the Username and Password the Data Center Expert server must use to log on at the SMTP server. Enable this option only when using an SMTP server that requires logon access.
