Configure the global external SMTP/SMTPS server

When you have started the Activator server and logged on to the user interface for the first time, one of the first things you should do is configure an external SMTP or SMTPS server. The system uses this SMTP/SMTPS server by default to send mail, unless its use is overridden in certain cases.

  1. Click System management on the top toolbar to open the System management page.
  2. Click Configure the global external SMTP server and Configure the global external SMTPS server to set up the servers.
  3. Consult with your network or email administrator for the information needed to complete the configuration fields. Typically, only the "Server name" and "Port" fields need to be populated. The "User name" and "Password" fields are available, but often not used.
  4. Click Test… to test the connection to the SMTP server. There is no Test… button for the SMTPS server.
  5. If the connection test is successful for the SMTP server, or when you are finished configuring the SMTPS server, click Save changes....
