Evidence Manager Tutorial:

Setting up the SMTP Server

Overview

As an administrator, you can use the Settings option to set up an SMTP server for Evidence Manager. Once the SMTP server is configured, Evidence Manager communicates with this SMTP server over the default port 25 to send emails to intended recipients in the following situations:

  • A new user account is created
  • An existing user account is modified
  • The configuration of a device using a configuration file either completes, or fails
  • An upgrade of the device either completes, or fails

Procedure

To set up the SMTP server:

  1. Log in to Evidence Manager.
  2. Go to Tools > Settings. The Settings window appears.
  3. Click the System tab.
  4. Do the following:
  1. Connect to devices by hostname: Select this checkbox to use the hostname of the SMTP server to connect to devices.
  2. Server: If the previous check box is selected, enter the IP address or the hostname of the server.
  3. Port: Enter or select the port that Evidence Manager will use while communicating with the SMTP server. The default value is 25.
