Configuring SMTP Mail Server for SPE

Unique SMTP mail server settings can be configured for every Scan Processing Engine (SPE). Separate SMTP servers will help balance the email load by sending scans through multiple mail servers.

On the server running SPE, do the following:

  1. Select Start > Run.
  2. Type regedit and click OK to open the Registry Editor.
  3. In the Registry Editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Equitrac.
  4. Create an SPE registry key.
  5. In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Equitrac\SPE, create the following string values:
    • "SMTPServer" - SMTP server name which local SPE is going to use.
    • "SMTPServerUser" - SMTP server user name.
    • "SMTPServerPass" - SMTP server user password.
    • "SMTPServerAddressForSystemGeneratedMessages" - Mail ‘From’ address for system generated messages.

If the SMTPServer value doesn't exist or is empty, SPE will use the SMTP mail server values configured in System Manager. If the SMTPServer value does exist, SPE will use the values from the registry. See Configure the Mail Server for Email Notifications for details.
