Email Notification

In unattended operations, you may wish to be advised about the results of backup plans. This function can be used to send a report of the execution result to an email address you provide.

To configure Email Notification:

  • Click “Menu in the title bar-->select “Settings”-->select “Notifications”-->
  • check “Enable email notification” to set up your email configuration information.

There are four SMTP servers for sending the notification email: HotMail Server, GMail Server, AOMEI Server or Custom Server.

  • When you select HotMail or Gmail, firstly you need to type into an email address which the program will send the execution result to and then you need to input your HotMail or GMail account for the SMTP authentication. So, it will use HotMail or GMail server to send the email notification.
  • When you select AOMEI Server, you only need to type into an email address which the program will send the execution result to. You don’t need to set the SMTP authentication. So, it will use AOMEI email server to send the email notification.
  • When you use Custom Server, you can specify your own email SMTP server to send the email notification.
  • SMTP Server: Specify the email SMTP server depending on your mail service.
    Port: Enter the port number of your email server, e.g. 465.
  • Encryption: Support plain text, SSL and TLS.

Of course, you also need to input your account for the SMTP authentication.
