This page describes how to configure SMTP for CertAlert. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].

Basic SMTP Setup

To receive email reports or alerts, an SMTP server needs to be configured in the 'CertAlert.dll.config' file. For a basic setup, define the SMTP server as follows:

<add key="SMTPServer" value="" />

Advanced SMTP Setup

For servers needing authentication or non-standard ports, additional settings are required. Here's a Gmail setup example:

<add key="SMTPServer" value="" />
<add key="SMTPPort" value="587" />
<add key="SMTPRequiresAuthentication" value="true" />
<add key="SMTPUser" value="[email protected]" />
<add key="SMTPPassword" value="yourgmailpassword" />
<add key="SMTPUseSsl" value="true" />

Please replace '[email protected]' and 'yourgmailpassword' with your actual Gmail username and password.
