Email Server Configuration

IBM Aspera Console needs to connect to a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server to send email notifications.

  1. Go to Notifications > Email Server.
  2. Enter the SMTP server information [A, B, C].
  3. Optional: Enable Transport Layer Security (TLS) [D] if available.
  4. Choose the authentication type [E] of your email server.
    If your SMTP server requires login credentials, select Login required under Authentication type and enter your login credentials. Otherwise, select Open authentication.
  5. In the 'From' address [F] and 'From' name [G] fields, enter the default sender email address and sender name that appear in email notifications when they receive an email notification.
  6. Enter your email address and select Save settings and send test email.
    Check your email inbox for the confirmation email titled Email settings test. If you do not receive the email, review your settings or check your spam folder.
