Remote SMTP

The Remote SMTP Delivery page allows you to enable email services using a remote SMTP server when port 25 is blocked.

To configure the Remote SMTP server on your UCx system, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Remote SMTP
  3. Update the fields as required
  4. Press the Save button to save the configuration changes

The fields required for the connection are:

Field Description
Status Select ON/OFF to enable/disable connection to the SMTP server
SMTP Server Select the type of email server to use: Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, or other
Domain Domain or Host name of the SMTP server
Port Port to establish connection with the SMTP Server
User User name of email account on the SMTP server
Password Password of the email account on the SMTP server
TLS Enabled

Check to enable authentication of certificates for Transport Layer Security.
Some SMTP servers like GMAIL requires this certificate.

 

When entering the Domain name, if the name is entered within brackets [ ], MX lookup is turned OFF. For some domains, it could be important to turn OFF MX lookup to make this SMTP feature work (i.e. the brackets are required for proper functionality).
