This article explains how to set up e-mail settings in SysKit Point.
Set Up E-Mail
SysKit Point sends e-mails to owners, administrators and, other users when automated workflows are enabled. Here you can find all the information needed to successfully configure e-mail settings, which SysKit Point will use to send the e-mails.
Only users assigned to the SysKit Point Admin role can access and configure Settings in SysKit Point.
For SysKit Point to be able to send e-mails, you need to configure the sending method. Two options are available:
- Exchange Online
- SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
E-mail address set up in this section will appear in the Sent from field in all e-mails sent from SysKit Point.
Exchange Online Settings
Exchange Online has a sending limit of 10000 e-mails per day.
|Microsoft 365 user mailbox||YES|
|Microsoft 365 group||NO|
|E-mail enabled security group||NO|
The Exchange Online method enables you to use an existing Exchange account in your Microsoft 365 tenant to send e-mails from SysKit Point. Here, you can:
- enter a valid e-mail address in the Sent from field (1)
- choose whether to save e-mails sent by SysKit Point to the Sent items folder (2); by default, this option is turned on, meaning that all e-mails sent from SysKit Point will be stored in the Sent mailbox folder of the entered Exchange account
- Send a test e-mail (3) to check if the entered e-mail address is working properly
After you click the Send test e-mail button, the Sent test e-mail dialog opens. Here, enter the e-mail address to which you want to send the test e-mail. After a moment, you should receive an e-mail like the one pictured below.
Click the Save button to store your e-mail settings.
Select the SMTP method if you are using an SMTP server in your environment. Here, you can enter the SMTP properties:
Sent from e-mail
Username and Password; in case the Require Authentication option is enabled
You can also choose whether to Use Encrypted Connection (SSL).
You can check if the entered data is correct by sending a test e-mail.
Click the Save button once you confirm that the test e-mail was received.
