The Notifications Tab contains parameters used to control who receives a status email when a CopyStorm job runs and under what circumstances email is sent. CopyStorm supports email notifications via SMTP or via a Salesforce SOAP API call.
The “Test Email Delivery” button causes an email to be sent to the recipient list. If communication to the SMTP email server or target Salesforce org is successful an acknowledgement dialog will be displayed and an email will be delivered to the recipients.
If communication to the SMTP email server or target Salesforce org fails, a dialog will be displayed showing the error. In this case you should show the error to your local administrator.

If CopyStorm fails before any backup can be attempted, a notification email like the following will be sent. In this example the password for Salesforce was incorrect in the CopyStorm configuration file.
