Checkpoint Via Email

Post by jeill » Mon Oct 18, 2021 3:58 pm

I'm trying to configure a checkpoint using the checkpoint via email. I'm would like to use the main email we setup for Switch (configured in the “mail send” preference for switch). It does not seem to work for me and I'm wondering if it's necessary to use a different email to monitor for the checkpoint - an email with a proper user setup in Switch?
Just having some difficulty with configuration and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The settings for receiving mails are in the "Checkpoint via mail" itself. The mail settings in the Switch Preferences are only for sending mails.

You should of course have a dedicated account for accessing the mail server from this element to avoid picking up mails that are not intended for this address, or having mails intended for this element being picked up somewhere else.

@freddyp - thanks so much for your response. I've got this figured out and have begun testing.
