From – If your going to send email from is required, this is required to be in [email protected] format
To – This will send to ONE email address, this can be a single email address or a distribution group. This is required to be in [email protected] format
mailServer – This is a unique value and requires some understanding- The default value is "LOCALHOST", IISLogs assumes the SMTPSVC is installed on the same computer as IISLogs is running and configured to send email to either a smarthost or directly out to the Internet. Another feature is, if your company runs an internal open relay server (no authentication required), you can just put your relay server here and the report would be sent (i.e. relayserver.yourCompany.com) and not have to specify credentials to send the report. However, if required to authenticate to the relay server (good idea to do this and NOT run an open relay server!), you would also would be required to fill in mailUID and mailPWD configuration settings with valid credentials for authentication.
mailPort – This allows for sending emails that have computers that run the SMTP service on other tcp ports than 25. the default value="25"
Mail Subject – This is the Subject that will show in the in the email.
Mail Authenication (Optional) – This provides an optional method to send credentials when sending an IISLogs report. If the relay server your sending update to doesn’t require an ID/PWD just leave this option blank.
Mail User ID – This allows for sending proper user id when sending email to remote systems requiring authentication. It would be used in conjunction with mailServer and mailPWD configuration settings. – The default settings are ignored if not correct and will log errors in the error log and/or Application event log.
Mail Password – This allows for sending proper password when sending email to remote systems requiring authentication. It would be used in conjunction with mailServer and configuration settings. – The default settings are ignored if not correct and will log errors in the error log and/or Application event log.
Retype Password – Retype the email password
