The Notifications Tab contains parameters used to control who receives a status email when a non-GUI CopyStorm/Restore job runs and under what circumstances email is sent.
|Email Host||Yes||The SMTP host used by your organization (used to send email). If you do not know this information ask your email administrator.
In the example a public server hosted by Google is used.
|Email From||Yes||The email address that will appear in the “From” field in sent notifications. Note that many email servers allow this value to be a fake email address (e.g. “firstname.lastname@example.org”).|
|Send Email To||Yes||Notification emails will be sent to this white space separated list of email addresses.|
|Subject||Yes||The subject line used for notification emails. Though it can be any text you want, there are a few special text values that will be replaced dynamically before a message is sent:
|Send Notification On||No||Determines when CopyStorm will send a notification email:
|Require Encryption||No||If checked, CopyStorm/Restore will require that connections to the email server be encrypted with TLS.|
|Email User||No||Username used to authenticate with the SMTP server.|
|Email Password||No||Password used to authenticate with the SMTP server.|
How to Test Email Delivery
The “Test Email Delivery” button causes an email to be sent to the “Send Email To” recipients. If communication to the SMTP email server is successful an acknowledgement dialog will be displayed and an email will be delivered to the recipients.
If communication to the SMTP email server fails a dialog will be displayed showing the error. In this case you should show the error to your local administrator.
