How to configure Email
- From the Explorer view, choose Options, then select Email Settings. The Email Settings view displays.
Use the System administrator email address text box to enter one or more email addresses.
Separate multiple email addresses by commas. Note: The administrator email is used to send license error notifications. For example, this email address is used when the system MAC address changes causing the software to lose its licensing.
Use the Type drop-down to specify the email API and connection method. The following options are available:
Option Description Plain Text Sends plaintext and unsecure email messages using SMTP. Only use this method when sending messages over a secure internal network.
Uses port 25 by default.
STARTTLS Sends email messages securely using SMTP. This method is the industry standard and should be used when ever possible. Use this option when sending SMTP messages from Microsoft Office 365 accounts.
Uses port 587 by default.
SSL Sends email messages securely using SMTP over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) channel. This option is provided for legacy email server implementations.
Uses port 465 by default.
Microsoft Graph Sends email securely from a Microsoft Office 365 account using Microsoft's Graph API.
- Use the Server text box to specify your email server.
Use the Port text box to specify your email server port.
Port Description 25 Default 587 TLS 465 SSL
Use the Username text box to enter the username to access the mail server.
To send anonymous email leave the Password field blank. If you leave the Username blank, the email server's spam engine will likely flag the messages as spam.
- Use the Password text box to enter the password to access the email server.
Use the From name text box to enter the friendly From name listed in the email (e.g. Corner Bowl Server Manager).
When using a service provider, such as Amazon Simple Email Service, that requires users to first authenticate with a non-email username and password, use this field to specify both your from name and from email. For example:Corner Bowl Server Manager <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Microsoft Graph API Email
Setting up the Microsoft Graph API requires multiple steps. First you need to setup your Azure environment so an external application can send email through Graph then you need to setup Server Manager so use the Graph API.
- Go to https://portal.azure.com/ then login.
- Once logged in, select Azure Active Directory.
Select Azure Active Directory
- Select App Registrations then New Registration.
Select New Registration
- Use the Name text box to specify a friendly name then click Register.
New Registration name
- Once the application is created, take note of the Application (client) ID and the Directory (tenant) ID. These values will be used later in Corner Bowl Server Manager.
- Select Certificates and secrets, New client secret, then use the Description text box to specify a friendly name. Lastly, click Add.
Add a new client secret
- Once added, immediately copy the client secret to a text editor for later use in Corner Bowl Server Manager. Once you leave this screen you will no longer be able to access the client secret.
Copy the client secret
- Select API Permissions, then Add a permission. The Request API permissions blade displays.
Select add a permission
- From the Request API permissions blade, select Microsoft Graph.
Select the Graph API
- Select Application permissions, then from the Select permissions text box type Mail.Send, expand Mail, check Mail.Send. Lastly, click Add permissions.
