PollCat NetLink II B The Email Text Messaging Parameters Menu


The Email and Text Messaging menu includes a series of prompts that are used to define parameters for the NetLink II's email and text message notification features. Note that this menu allows you to define parameters for up to two possible email recipients, and that the individual configuration menus for each alarm or scheduled action are then used to select either one or both of these possible recipients. The Email and Text Messaging menu (Figure 5.16) is accessed via item 38 in the Network Port Configuration Menu and includes the following items:

SMTP Server Parameters:

1                     IP Address: The IP Address of your SMTP server (Default = undefined.)

2                     Port Number: The Port Number that is used when connecting to your SMTP server.  (Default = 25.)

3                     User Name: The User Name that is used when logging on to your SMTP server.  (Default = undefined.)

4                     Password: The Password that is used when logging on to your SMTP server.  (Default = undefined.)

5                     Authentication Type: The type of authentication protocol that is used when logging on to your SMTP server.  (Default = Login.)


Note: Before selecting email and text messaging parameters, please consult your network administrator in order to determine appropriate settings.


11. Send Test Email:  Sends a test email, based on the configuration currently selected via the SMTP Parameters Menu.
