How to configure notification settings for scan violations
Last Updated May 28, 2014
Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange (SMSMSE) is install and it is necessary to configure notifications.
When you configure notification and alert settings, you need to specify the administrators, users, or computers that should receive email notifications. Restrict the issuing of alerts to a small list of interested administrators to avoid unnecessary interruptions.
Email notifications can be issued when a SMSMSE scan detects a policy violation or an outbreak. An alert can also be sent to notify an administrator when a server experiences a critical service failure.
Note: Email notifications are sent only to names and addresses that can be resolved against Active Directory objects.
You specify the subject line and message text for each type of notification message when you configure policies and rules.
To configure notification settings for scan violations
In the SMSMSE console on the primary navigation bar, click Monitors.
In the sidebar under Views, click Notification Settings.
In the content area, in the Address of sender to use in email notification box, type the email address of the sender that you want to use for email notifications.
In the Administrators or others to notify box, type the email addresses of administrators and users to notify.
Separate each entry by commas. If you are including an email address that is not within your domain, type the fully qualified email address (for example, email@example.com).
On the toolbar, click Deploy changes to apply your changes.
