The Email Server option allows you to specify the email server used for processing StorNext notification email messages. On this page you will enter basic information such as the email server name and sending entity. You can also send a test message so you can verify that StorNext recognizes the email server whose information you entered.
Note: The Email Server option does not configure your email server. Instead, it allows you to specify a previously configured email server so StorNext knows which server is responsible for processing notification messages. Before you use the Email Server option, make sure your email SMTP server is already configured.
On the Configuration menu, click Email Server.
Complete the following fields related to your email system configuration on the Configuration > Email Server page. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
Parameter Description SMTP Server [:Port] Enter the identification for the server that stores and processes your email account information; this might be a valid server name or an IP address. You can optionally add a port number. Verify SMTP Connectivity Enable this option if you want StorNext to verify that the SMTP server you entered is valid and reachable. Authentication
If your email provider requires a password to sign on, select the PASSWORD option. Otherwise, select NONE.
If you select the PASSWORD option, the following fields appear:
- Account: Enter a valid email account for outgoing email messages.
- Password: Enter the email account’s sign-on password, if required.
Enter the email address for the entity responsible for sending alert messages to designated recipients.
Note: When using public servers with Authentication enabled, enter the account email address for the Sender Address.
Send Test Email If enabled, the Test Email Address field appears, which allows you to enter an email address to which you can send test messages to confirm successful configuration.
Click Apply to save your changes, or click Reset to clear all the fields.
