Specifying an E-mail Server

To enable administrators to e-mail information directly from Administration Services Console to other administrators or to Oracle Technical Support, an outgoing mail (SMTP) server must be specified on the Essbase Administration Server computer.

SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is a protocol for sending e-mail messages between servers. When an administrator sends e-mail from Administration Services Console, the specified SMTP server is used to send the message to the receiver's e-mail client.

For information about how to e-mail information from Administration Services Console, see E-mailing Essbase Information.

  To specify an outgoing mail server:

  1. Start Administration Services.

  2. From the Administration Services Console window, select the appropriate Essbase Administration Server.

  3. Right-click and select Edit properties from the popup menu.

  4. In the Admin Server Properties window, select the Configuration tab.

  5. In the E-mail Server area, enter the name of the SMTP server.

  6. Click Apply and close the Admin Server Properties window.
