5.3.4. Configuring the SMTP Server for Email Notifications

Each JBoss ON server talks to a specific SMTP server. The SMTP server is defined in the rhq-server.properties file. The default configuration points to the local JBoss ON server hosts.
# Email
rhq.server.email.smtp-host=localhost
rhq.server.email.smtp-port=25
rhq.server.email.from-address=rhqadmin@localhost
These settings can be edited to use a different SMTP server or email account.

Note

To confirm that the SMTP settings are correct and the server can send emails successfully, go to the test email page at http://server/admin/test/email.jsp.
