How to Configure System Email Notifications

  • Last updated on

The CloudGen Firewall can alert the administrator of important system events by sending notification emails. You can configure a notification email policy for each event. To limit the number of emails for frequently occurring events, you can define up to three thresholds. Then, the administrator will receive an email only when the number of events exceeds the threshold set in the time span.

Services Using System Email Notifications

Step 1. Enable Email Notifications
