The email feature is optional for Metasys servers. You require a valid SMTP email account and access to the SMTP server to use the email feature. For email functionality to work, you must enter at least one valid entry for SMTP server (outgoing), Email address (From), and Email address (To/CC/BCC) as shown in the following table.

Table 1. Email Section Contents

Field

Description

SMTP Server (outgoing)

Enter either the IP address or the name of the SMTP server. Use the IP address because it does not rely on the domain name system (DNS) to resolve the name.

Example: 167.206.112.6 (mail-hub.optonline.net)

To avoid having the Monitoring Settings window appear when you restart the ADS, ADX, OAS, NAE85, or LCS85, enter the SMTP server in this field.

Note: If you do not know the SMTP server address or name, contact your IT department.

Email Address (From)

Enter the email address from which the Metasys Database Manager Monitor email is sent. Metasys Database Manager is used as an alias for email clients that support it.

Email Addresses (To)

Click the Browse button to display the Address List window, see image below. Enter either email addresses, or cell phone numbers for text messages in the fields provided. Email addresses appear in the To: field of the email.

Email Addresses (CC)
