Can't enable email!

Hello guys!

Im using vsphere 6.7 and I want  to enable all the default email alarms without configure each one of them.

I already configure mail notifications on vCenter > General > Edit > Mail:

I made changes on:

Mail server:

Mail Sender:

But I didn't receive any Alarm and  "Alarm Definitions" still without changes.

Please Help!

You have to decide which alarms you want to configure to get email if something happen. Without configuring you can not get email. However, If something happen you can see in the vCenter under alarms tab

As Nawal said. Without definitions you wont get any alarms...

+ this is the procedure:

Create or Edit Alarms (official doc) (good step by step guide)
