E-mail Settings

These entries can specify the SMTP host name and return address in installed.properties. The following describes an alternative way to set up mail. 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. 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.
