Setting up Mail parameters

The Mail parameters define the mail server used to send notifications.

  1. Click the Mail Settings sub-tab and enter the following information:

    • Mail server: Specify the outgoing mail server you wish to use to send task and server notifications, for example, smtp.example.com.
    • Port: Specify the port number where the mail server is located. The default value is 25.
    • Use SSL: Select to connect to the mail server (for sending notifications) using SSL.
    • Verify peer: Select if you want the mail server to send a certificate proving its identity. On Windows, the certificate will be authenticated using the default CA certificates.

      • CA Path: On Linux, specify the location of the server CA certificate.
    • Verify host: Select to verify that the host name in the certificate matches the host name of the mail server.
    • Anonymous login: Select to allow a Qlik Replicate user to access the mail server without having to provide any user credentials.
    • User name: Specify the user name for logging in to the SMTP Server.
    • Password: Specify the password for logging in to the SMTP Server.
    • Sender email address: Enter the email address that sends the email notifications. This is the address that appears in the From field of the email notification.
    • Send test email: Click to open the Send Test Email dialog box.
    • Email address for test email: Type an email address to receive a test email message from the server you configured. Use this to determine that the Mail Parameters you defined are valid.
