We would recomend SMTP
configuration for best results when using WinSPC with external E-Mail for the following features:
*E-Mail Triggers for Control Test rule violations in Data Collection mode
*E-Mail Notifications for failures to collect data using Timed Data Collection
*E-Mail PDF reports directly from the preview report window
*E-Mail Actions in Dashboards in WinSPC 9 and abovePrerequisites
*You will need either the IP address or the Server Name of your SMTP server.*Port 25
must be available on your SMTP server.Steps
1) Log into WinSPC as the ADMIN
user. (No other user can make this change).
2) Browse out to Tools
3) On the E-Mail tab, select the SMTP
radio button option.
4) Enter either the Server Name
or the IP address
of your SMTP server.
5) Enter a Default Sender
E-Mail address. NOTE:
A default sender E-Mail address must
be used. This is an address used for named recipients to respond to if the WinSPC User does not include an E-Mail address. Some customers who do not require responses to triggers use addresses like: No-Reply@YourCompanyName.com
