SnapManager enables you to specify the mail server details from which the email alerts are sent.

SnapManager enables you to specify the sender’s email server host name or IP address, and the email server port number for a repository database name that requires email notification. You can configure the mail server port number in a range from 0 through 65535; the default value is 25. If you require authentication for the email address, you can specify the user name and password.

You must specify name or IP address of the host server that handles the email notification.
