Figure: Example System Settings Screen

Mail Server

The address of the mail server. This can be a numeric address, for example 123.123.34.10, or a domain name, for example mail.myserver.com.

Mail Server Port

The port of the mail server.

Mail Usercode

If you need to log into your SMTP server, enter the user code here. If you don't need to log in, leave this blank.

Mail Password

Send Alert To

The user code to which all alerts should be sent. You can set up alerts so that they go to specific users. An alert will be sent to all users on the actual alert plus this specific user.

Send Alert Location

A description of where the alert email was sent from.

Send Alert From

The email address of the account that is sending the email. You need this to ensure the email doesn't get identified as spam.

Inventory Contact for BE Messages

Alerts can be set up so that they go to contacts at a location. Instead of the alert being sent to user 'JB', the alert can be sent to the 'Inventory Manager' for the location. The alert will work out who the inventory manager is for a specific location and send the alert to that user. This means that if a new inventory manager is appointed, you simply update the contact for the location, instead of trying to adjust the alerts themselves.

This option allows you to select the contact type that represents the inventory manager. If the system needs to send a message to the inventory manager, it will use this contact type to determine who the inventory manager is.

SMS Service

Used by the alerts service in order to send sms alerts.

SMS Service Client ID

Used by the alerts service in order to send sms alerts.

SMS Service Password

Used by the alerts service in order to send sms alerts.
