Adding Email Notifications

To add an email alert you will need to know the addresses you want alerts sent to, the outbound SMTP server that allows the Sandfly server to send email, and login information.

Adding email alerts.

You need to supply the following fields below:

Name - A readable name for your reference of the email alert group.
Email Sender - What email address should the Sandfly server use as the sender? This normally should be the same domain that is linked to the user login otherwise the SMTP server will likely reject it as invalid.
Email Recipients - A list of email addresses to receive the alerts. This is a simple list and you can put in a mailing list instead of individual addresses if you have a group meant to receive alerts.
Mail Server - The outbound SMTP address that will be connected to to send mail.
Security - You need to select if your SMTP server wants TLS, SSL, or no encryption for login. Most servers will want TLS or SSL.
Use Default Port - When you select the security type above, Sandfly will choose the correct port to use. If you need to override the port, uncheck this box and put it in the Port option below.
Port - Default port to use to send email. You don't need to change this unless there is a special reason.
Mail Username - The username Sandfly will use to login to the SMTP server to send email.
Mail Password - The password Sandfly will use to login to the SMTP server to send email.

Once you enter all these fields, hit Add and Sandfly will encrypt your email credentials and add them to the database.
