email notifications

Hi,

I am trying to setup an email alert on an va 4400. I have entered a smtp server, the firewall rule is configured.

email notification is enabled and notify on:.... is switch on for disk group alarms and hardware condition changes is enabled.

I change the alarm setting to generate an email and nothing comes through. I have tested using telenet and i can connect to the smtp server and i receive a test email ehen sending using telnet.

Am i missing anything?

Re: email notifications

How do you specify the 'sender' address?
Some of HPs kit REALLY doesn't like the '@' and anything after it.
So, instead of 'va4400@company.com', try just 'va4400'

Re: email notifications

Then it may be an authentication issue?

There's nothing in the logs on the server?

Re: email notifications

it does not need to authenticate, the server is on the allowed list and i can send emails using telnet. in the eva options you can select to use authentication or not. we dont so icant see it been that.

I have checked the smtp logs and nothing..

thanks
