Setting up alerts.
« on: April 22, 2017, 10:38:20 PM »

having tried to set them up, I have in event log
Other undefined Status421 Cannot connect to SMTP server (, connect error 10061
I want alerts to go to one of my PN mailboxes and am not sure about the SMTP server details. Is it other than the one for outgoing mail?

Where you send it to is up to you. The SMTP server is a separate thing - it's the email service which you want to use to send it from. You might (for example) want it to be sent to one of your plusnet mailboxes but use your gmail account (if you have one) to send it. In this case the SMTP server details and the other boxes below it will all require your gmail account details.
