  • From - The email address to display in the From field.

  • SMTP Server - The name of the SMTP mail server.

  • User Name - The user name that is used to authenticate to the SMTP server.

  • User Password - The password that is used to authenticate to the SMTP server.

  • SMTP Port - The port on which to connect to the SMTP server.

  • SSL Start Mode - Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) start-mode options. Valid options are STARTTLS (Explicit SSL), TLS/SSL (Implicit SSL), or None (No SSL).

Enabling Notifications for a Job

To configure email notifications for a job:

  1. Click the Notifications tab in your job.

  2. Select E-mail me the results and set the following properties:

    • To - The email to which to send notifications.

    • Subject - The subject for notification emails.

    • Email On Error Only - An option to specify that notification emails should be sent only when the job encounters an error. When this option is not selected, notifications are sent after each job run.

Send Notifications to a Microsoft Teams Channel

You can send email to a Microsoft Teams channel by using a channel email address in the To field of the mail settings on the Notifications tab in Sync. Once the channel email is added to a job, Sync sends alerts to the channel with the results of the job execution.

Note: You need to configure the connection to your SMTP server to enable Sync to send the alerts. Without that connection, Sync cannot send emails.

For details about how to obtain a channel email address for a Teams channel, see Send an email to a channel in Teams.

Send Notifications to a Slack Channel

You can send email to a Slack channel by using a channel email address in the To field of the mail settings on the Notifications tab in Sync. Once the channel email is added to a job, Sync sends alerts to the channel with the results of the job execution.

Note: You need to configure the connection to your SMTP server to enable Sync to send the alerts. Without that connection, Sync cannot send emails.
