E-mail Notification Failed

Recommended Posts

Retrospect Version 7.6.123

Driver Update and hot Fix, version 7.6.2.101

 

When sending a test e-mail, I receive the following error: "E-mail notification failed: error -541 (backup client not installed or not running)

 

I can telnet to the mail server on port 25 and manually send e-mails, however it fails from Retrospect.

 

Any ideas?

Resolved

 

Enabled logging on Networking and it said Retrospect was trying to connecting on port 2,560 (no idea why). Added :25 to the end of the IP and it was able to send e-mail.

Just for the benefit of other readers of the thread:

 

That is a bug. If you enter a SMTP server IP number (instead of a name), you have to enter the port number.
