    VCSA 6.7 SMTP Setup

    ThriveTP Novice



      Trying to configure vcenter server to send smtp alerts using the following article, Configure Mail Sender Settings, but getting stuck at step 3 (pasted below)--i do not see a General tab under Configure for the VCenter VM. I'm probably misunderstanding, but any guidance would be a help. It's a VSphere 6.7 Essentials license, if that matters. Thanks.





      1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to the vCenter Server instance.
      2. Select the Configure tab.
      3. Under Settings, select General.
      4. Click Edit.
      5. Select Mail.
      6. In Mail server, type the SMTP server information.

        The SMTP server is the DNS name or IP address of the SMTP gateway to use for sending email messages.

      7. In Mail sender, type the sender account information.

        The sender account is the email address of the sender.

        Note: You must type the full email address, including the domain name.


        For example, mail_server@example.com.
      8. Click Save.
