By default, Backup Reporter sends email via Outlook. If you are not using Outlook, or for security reasons, Outlook does not permit Backup Reporter to send email, you can configure an email gateway using Reports | Report SMTP Settings.
Review the following options for these settings:
|Sender||Sender’s email address.|
|SMTP Server Host Name||Hostname of your Simple Mail Transport Protocol server. This is your mail gateway.|
|SMTP Port||TCP port that the SMPT server listens on. By default, this is port 25.|
|Connect Using||Anonymous Access does not send any credentials to the SMPT server. Typically this only works with SMTP servers inside of your firewall.|
Windows Authentication uses your current login as credentials to the SMPT server.
|Basic Authentication sends a user name and password to the SMPT server to authenticate.|
|Use SSL||Causes the network traffic to the SMTP server to be encrypted.|
|Send To||Recipient of the test email.|
