E-Mail Configuration

(Note: you may need to generate an app password from your email service provider such as Gmail or Microsoft)
Your server can send automated e-mail alerts to those of your clients who request them and you can manually send e-mails to clients using this software.  In particular, software clients can request that backup hosts send them no-data and no-connection e-mail alerts and they specify how long a period should pass for this condition to trigger.  For your server to be able to send outbound e-mail, it must be enabled and properly configured.
 An example of settings for gmail (and Google hosted email) can be found here.
