The iSMA MailService kit consists of three components:

  • Email Service: main component;
  • Out Account: defines e-mail server account credentials;
  • Email Alarm Recipient: defines e-mail recipients.

WARNING! Prior to starting the e-mail service on the iSMA-B-AAC20 controller, make sure that the controller’s default gateway and DNS (if the Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically slot is set to false) are properly set in the plat service.

All three components should be located in a service branch one under another as per the figure below:
