Alert mails can be sent to designated email addresses when significant LicenseServer events occur. An example of a significant event is the following: Altova LicenseServer needs to be connected to the altova.com server (the Master LicenseServer). If the connection is broken for more than 24*5 hours (5 days), (your) LicenseServer will not allow licenses. As a result, work sessions with Altova products licensed by LicenseServer could be disrupted. In order to alert the administrator that a connection is broken, an alert mail can be sent to an email address. Note: LicenseServer contacts the Master LicenseServer at altova.com every 24 hours.
The Alert Mail settings (see screenshot below) define the configuration for sending alert mails to an administrator's email address.
|•||SMTP Host and SMTP Port are the access details of the email server from which the email alert will be sent.|
|•||User Authentication and User Password are the user's credentials for accessing the email server.|
|•||The From field takes the address of the email account from which the email will be sent.|
|•||The To field takes the recipient's email address.|
|•||The Send a warning email option in the Miscellaneous pane also makes use of the email settings. (See the Miscellaneous pane for a description of this option.)|
Click Save when done. After saving the Alert Mail settings, email alerts will be sent to the address specified whenever a significant event occurs, such as when connection to altova.com is lost. Note that such events are also recorded in the Messages tab, and can be looked up there.
