5.2 Email Configuration

latest update: 2021-06-15

The administrator will need to configure the email server settings of users to support the sending of emails for notifications. These email notifications occur when defects are assigned to individual users. After logging into the system, the administrator can access the mail server configuration section by clicking Admin in the left menu and then clicking Email Configuration in the sub-menu.
