Description

 

 

 

Defines the user and domain names of the recipient.

 

To use e-mailfor paging, use thee-mailaddress for the

 

recipient’s pager gateway account (for example,

To Address

myacct100@skytel.com). The pager gateway pages the

 

recipient.

 

Note: The recipient’s pager must be able to usetext-based

 

messaging.

 

 

 

Selects one of the following methods for routing e-mail:

 

• Through the Management Card’s SMTP server (the

 

recommended option, Local SMTP Server). This option

 

ensures that the e-mailis sent before the Management Card’s

 

20-secondtimeout, and, if necessary, is retried several times.

Send via

• Directly to the recipient’s SMTP server (theRecipient’s SMTP

Server option). On a busy remoteSMTP server, the timeout

 

 

may prevent some e-mailfrom being sent, and with this

 

option, the Management Card tries to send the e-mailonly

 

once.

 

When the recipient uses the Management Card’s SMTP server,

 

this setting has no effect.

recipient.

 

 

 

When you select the Local SNMP Server option for theSend via setting, you must do one of the following:

Make sure that forwarding is enabled at that server so that the server can route e-mailto externalSMTP servers.

Note: Always see yourSMTP server’s administrator before changing the configuration of your SMTP server.

Set up a special e-mailaccount for the Management Card. This account then forwards thee-mailto an external account.

In the Web interface, use theEmail Test option to send a test message to a configured recipient.
