I have tried all the settings in different ways to try and get notifications working. My mail server is an exchange server. Does anyone know the settings needed to connect to SMTP and send the notifications?
is it a local Exchange or Hosted ?
hosted should be "outlook.office365.com", port 587, SSL auth = on
your email as sender mail and user id.
local exchange is different depending on your setup but same as your outlook config
my best bet would be in the form of
smtp-mail.yourdomain.com . port 587 if you use SSL and port 25 if not
rest is the same.
Yeah I tried those settings, but still get nothing from the test email. I've also tried username as email address and domain login (i.e. domain\username) and neither one works.
theoretically the setup should be
user name should be same you use to setup outlook account or to login to the web exchange UI.
either your full email email@example.com or just the user part no "@" anything
port 587, try it with SSL turned on and off
I got it figured out. I had to set up exchange to allow internal relay. I also had to use port 25 and my email address/password for authentication. I turned off SSL/TLS and it finally worked.
Gotta say I LOVE OMV! Much easier to work with than FreeNAS!
