Solution

To specify the e-mail settings:

  • Select the Send e-mail notifications about the operation state check box:

    • Enter the e-mail address in the E-mail address field. You can enter several e-mail addresses in a semicolon-delimited format.
    • Enter the outgoing mail server (SMTP) in the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) field.
    • Set the port of the outgoing mail server. By default the port is set to 25.
    • Enter the user name in the User name field. Even if your SMTP server does not require authentication, you will still need to enter your username and password.
    • Enter the password in the Password field. Even if your SMTP server does not require authentication, you will still need to enter your username and password.
    • To check whether your settings are correct, click the Send test message button.

      (!) Acronis True Image Home here acts as an E-mail client, otherwise it will not be able to send notifications. Think of it as Microsoft Outlook, which cannot send an E-mail without your E-mail account credentials.

      To send an e-mail message, any Acronis product needs some SMTP server credentials to send the request to this SMTP server to send an E-mail message. Acronis itself is not providing service of the SMTP server. (Neither does Microsoft Outlook, for example).

  • Additional notification settings:

    • To send a notification concerning process completion, select the Send notification upon operation's successful completion check box.
    • To send a notification concerning process failure, select the Send notification upon operation failure check box.
    • To send a notification with operation messages, select the Send notification when user interaction is required check box.
    • To send a notification with full log of operations, select the Add full log to the notification check box.
