Email Settings Section

The Email Settings section allows you to Create an Email Notification for NNM. You can specify the recipients of the email notifications, what charts appear in email notifications, and the time and frequency with which email notifications are sent. To send a report immediately, in the Email Settings section, hover over an existing email notification and click the paper airplane icon.

When you select SMTP Server in the Setting Type drop-down box, the following options for configuring the SMTP server appear:
