When you activate SMTP alerts, you must identify a primary SMTP server for forwarding alert messages. You must also specify the email addresses of the recipients and the local domain for Symantec Protection Engine. You can specify a second SMTP server if one is available.
You must select the types of events for which SMTP alert messages are generated.
In the console on the primary navigation bar, click Monitors.
In the sidebar under Views, click Alerting.
In the content area under SMTP Notifications, in the SMTP notification level list, select the SMTP notification level.
SMTP alerts are not activated by default. The SMTP notification level is set to None. The Verbose notification level is not available for SMTP alerting.
In the Primary server address box, type the IP address or host name of the primary SMTP server that forwards the alert messages.
In the Secondary server address box, type the IP address or host name of a secondary SMTP server (if one is available) that forwards the alert messages if communication with the primary SMTP server fails.
In the SMTP domain box, type the local domain for Symantec Protection Engine.
The domain name is added to the From box for SMTP messages. SMTP alert messages that Symantec Protection Engine generates originate from SymantecProtectionEngine@<domainname>, where <domainname> is the domain name that you specify in the SMTP domain box.
In the Email recipients box, type the email addresses of the recipients of the SMTP alert messages.
Type one email address per line.
