PAW - Configure Event Notifications - Password Risk

Post by chewza »

Hi Guys


We are looking at setting up event notifications for PAW. From what I have read, the smtp info needs to be captured into the bootstrap file.

This includes the smtp password. In my mind, this represents a massive security risk. Surely this should be encrypted?

Many thx!

Hi,

What mail server are you using?

For MS Exchange try a google search like this “Allow anonymous relay on Exchange servers“
