E-mail Settings

These entries can specify the SMTP host name and return address in installed.properties. The following describes an alternative to the graphic user interface described in SMTP / Email Settings. The application uses this host name whenever it sends an e-mail; it uses the return address when e-mailing alarms from the Alarm Window, for example.

 

#redcell.smtphost=(put SMTP server name or IP here)

#redcell.smtphost.authentication.enabled=true

#redcell.smtphost.username=(user name here)

#redcell.smtphost.password=(password here)

#redcell.returnaddress=(return address)

#redcell.notification.message=(default message subject)

 

# EXAMPLE values

#redcell.smtphost=postoffice.myserver.com

#redcell.smtphost.authentication.enabled=true

#redcell.smtphost.username=John

#redcell.smtphost.password=secret

#redcell.returnaddress=EMAIL@postoffice.myserver.com

 

Typically, you can send e-mail within your SMTP host’s domain without a login or password. The SMTP.properites (or installed.properties override) e-mail configuration overrides the following, if you need to set login and password.

In the unusual event that you must send mail outside your domain, set the login/password for the application in three properties that are now in redcell.prop­erties for connecting to SMTP server using username and password.

redcell.smtphost.authentication.enabled=false

redcell.smtphost.username=admin

redcell.smtphost.password=password

Set the redcell.smtphost.authentication.enabled property to true and provide the username and password information for authenticating the application server with SMTP Server.

To receive email from event templates that trigger e-mails, the destination user must have an e-mail address in this software. See User Manager for details. To e-mail from actions/mapping, you just need to type in email account in the actions and then map the actions. No need to add anything to the user manager.
