Email (SMTP) Transport Configuration

The eiConsole’s Email (SMTP) Transport will allow you to send data via SMTP.

As with all the components of the eiConsole, the user is presented with a graphical interface with easy to configure panels.

To configure an Email (SMTP) Transport, select Email (SMTP) from the Transport Type drop-down.

Basic Email (SMTP) Transport Configuration Options

On the Basic configuration tab, fill in the Server configuration item with the SMTP server’s name or IP address that you wish to connect to. In the From configuration item, specify the email address – who the email should appear from. This is typically the same address that you will be using to connect to the SMTP server. The To configuration item will be used to specify the target address or the email address to which it should be sent.

Optionally, the Reply-To address on the outbound email message may be specified. The optional Subject configuration item allows you to specify the subject line of the email. The CC and BCC configuration items allow you to specify the e-mail target CC and BCC address(es).
