NETGEAR - READYNAS - SMTP Settings

The Views Expressed Below Do not in any way reflect Internal Doctorine or Official Statements of Netgear Inc. These are just my notes - Use at your own Risk.

THIS ARTCILE APPLIES TO READYNAS 4.2.x INTEL UNITS and 4.1.x SPARC UNITS

READYNAS SMTP: 

Look up smtp server and port settings in google and dont forget to check in those settings if you need ssl(tls) enabled with google search.

If you need ssl, then check the tls checkbox. If you need tls also check the tls checkbox.

 

Example of the google search:

"gmail smtp settings" or "verizon.net smtp settings" etc.

 

--Example with Verizon.net--

Imagine I have the following account from yahoo.

kossboss@yahoo.com

password: whocares

And lets say I want 2 of my alerts to recieve the email: kossboss@yahoo.com and koss@email.com.

What will happen is the NAS will use the smtp settings of yahoo, and send out emails from kossboss@yahoo.com.

The trick with emails, the reason we have to fill this stuff out instead of just tell the nas who to email when an alert happens - we also need to tell the nas who to email from - every email comes from some email server.

 

Alert Contact 1 ( Who will recieve the alert): kossboss@yahoo.com

 

Alert Contact 2 ( Who will recieve the alert): koss@email.com

 

Email ProviderCustom

 

User (just the username name of the account your sending from): kossboss

 

Password (password of the account your sending from): whocares

 

SMTP (smtp settings of the account your sending from - this is what your google search should lead you to): smtp.verizon.net

 

SMTP PORT (smtp port of the account your sending from - this is another item your google search should result in): 465

 

* From (this is the full email address from your sending): kossboss@yahoo.com

 

* Use TLS (since yahoo said i need to use ssl to use their smtp server to send emails out, i needed to check this): Check

 

If the provider wanted me to send out TLS, then I would check that as well - obviously

 

So everytime an alert happens the following 2 emails go out:

email 1 from: kossboss@yahoo.com

email 1 to: kossboss@yahoo.com

 

email 2 from: kossboss@yahoo.com

email 2 to: koss@email.com

 

Notice the first email is just a looped back email - its okay to do that.

 

I hope that helps out everyone figure out the SMTP alert settings
