    To use this function the following settings need to be configured:

    SMTP Enabled: Select ‘Yes’ to enable and to further configure the settings related to the SMTP function.

    SMTP Server:Enter the URL of a valid SMTP server. I.E. mail.accuenergy.com or smtp.gmail.com

    SMTP Port: Enter the port number associated with the SMTP server.

    SMTP From: Enter a name or phrase which will appear to let you know who the mail is from. I.E. ‘Technical Support’

    SMTP Username: Enter the SMTP user name for the SMTP server set above.

    After configuring the above settings, the next step is to select the contents for the emails. The emails can be sent either due to an Alarm/SOE event or based on time sending.

    To enable emails to be sent based on a new Alarm or SOE Event, select ‘Yes’ under “SMTP Triggered Sending Alarm Event” or “SMTP Triggered Sending SOE Event”.
