  • Windows Server Administrator permissions.
  • Required Appspace roles and permissions: Portal Admin.
  • An SMTP server, with valid email account(s) to be used at the source account for sending out the email notifications.
  • An open (unrestricted) SMTP network port(s) between the SMTP server and the Appspace on-prem server. Please check with your network administrator as SMTP port(s) may vary depending on specific SMTP configurations.

Please be informed that once configuration server settings have been saved, a notification is displayed at the top, informing you that the Appspace server has detected changes in the server settings, and to Click Here to apply these settings. Clicking the link will redirect you to the Apply Configuration tab, in which you would be required to enter your Windows Server Administrator credentials for the server settings to be applied.
