SMTP servers with TLS encryption are supported by ESET Mail Security.

SMTP server - The SMTP server used for sending notifications.

Username and password - If the SMTP server requires authentication, these fields should be filled in with a valid username and password to access the SMTP server.

Sender address - Enter sender's address that will appear in the header of notification emails. This is what the recipient will see in the From field.

Recipient address - Specify recipient's email address To whom notifications will be delivered.

Minimum verbosity for notifications - Specifies the minimum verbosity level of notifications to be sent.

Enable TLS - Enable alert and notification messages supported by TLS encryption.

Interval after which new notification emails will be sent (min) - Interval in minutes after which new notification will be sent via email. Set this value to 0 if you want to send those notifications immediately.

Send each notification in a separate email - When enabled, the recipient will receive a new email for each individual notification. This may result in a large number of emails being received in a short period of time.

Message format

Format of event messages - Format of event messages that are displayed on remote computers. Also see Edit format.

Format of threat warning messages - Threat alert and notification messages have a predefined default format. We advise against changing this format. However, in some circumstances (for example, if you have an automated email processing system), you may need to change the message format. Also see Edit format.

Use local alphabetic characters - Converts an email message to the ANSI character encoding based on Windows Regional settings (for example, windows-1250). If you leave this deselected, a message will be converted and encoded in ACSII 7-bit (for example "á" will be changed to "a" and an unknown symbol to "?").

Use local character encoding - The email message source will be encoded to Quoted-printable (QP) format which uses ASCII characters and can correctly transmit special national characters by email in 8-bit format (áéíóú).
