Set Up E-Mail

As a part of the Automated Access Review process, e-mails are sent to Syskit Point Admin and Syskit Point Collaborator users. For Syskit Point to be able to send e-mails, you need to configure the sending method. Two options are available:

  • Exchange Online

  • SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol

Please Note! The e-mail address set up in this section will appear in the Sent from field in all e-mails sent from Syskit Point.

Exchange Online Settings

Please Note! Exchange Online has a sending limit of 10000 e-mails per day.

The Exchange Online method enables you to use an existing Exchange account in your Microsoft 365 tenant to send e-mails from Syskit Point. Here, you can:

  • Enter a valid e-mail address in the Sent from field (1)

  • Choose whether to save e-mails sent by Syskit Point to the Sent Items folder (2); by default, this option is turned on, meaning that all e-mails sent from Syskit Point will be stored in the Sent mailbox folder of the entered Exchange account

  • Send a test e-mail (3) to check if the entered e-mail address is working properly

After clicking the Send test e-mail button, the Sent test e-mail dialog opens. Here, enter the e-mail address to which you want to send the test e-mail.

Click the Save button to store your e-mail settings.

SMTP Settings

Select the SMTP method if you are using an SMTP server in your environment. Here, you can enter the SMTP properties:

  • Outgoing Server

  • Port

  • Sent from e-mail

  • Username and Password; in case the Require Authentication option is enabled

    You can also choose whether to Use Encrypted Connection (SSL).

You can check if the entered data is correct by sending a test e-mail.

Click the Save button once you confirm you received the test e-mail.
