E-Mail Options

The E-mail tab options specifies the default SMTP protocol and port to be used when AutoMate sends an e-mail on task error or when the parameter labeled Default server settings is enabled in the Advanced tab properties of the 'Send E-mail' action.

NOTE: SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is the standard protocol for sending messages on the Internet.
