Notification email parameters

Use this page to modify the cell-wide task notification email parameters. To view this console page, click System administration > Task management > Notifications.

The sender user ID is preset to wasxd and cannot be configured. Your SMTP registry might require wasxd to be registered before the WebSphere cell can successfully send email notifications.

If security is enabled, some fields are not available without security authorization.


SMTP host name

Simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) server to connect to when sending mail. Validation on the server host name is not performed.


SMTP port number

SMTP port number to connect to when sending mail. The valid port numbers are 1 - 64767. Validation that the port is the correct SMTP port is not performed.


SMTP user ID

User ID when the mail transport host requires authentication. Leave this field blank unless you use a mail server that requires a user ID and password.


SMTP password

Password when the mail transport host requires authentication. Leave this field blank unless you use a mail server that requires a user ID and password.


Enable notifications

Toggles email notifications on and off. When notifications are enabled, an email is sent to each of the email addresses specified when a task is generated.


Email address

When notification is enabled, an email is sent to each of the email addresses specified when a task is generated. If no email addresses are specified, email notifications are not sent out. Each email address is validated for syntax.

When you complete the changes, click Test e-mail to verify that the task information is sent. If the email server uses spam-blocking software, this test can fail and prevent the email from displaying in the test in-box. When the test is successful, click Apply or OK. Then, click Save


Email sender’s address

When notification is enabled, we can optionally include an email address of the sender on the email notification. If no email address of the sender is specified, the address of the server is used. The email address is validated for syntax.
