Configure WebBlocker Server Notification Settings

On the Configuration > Notifications tab of the Server Management page, you can configure WebBlocker Server to send email notifications when a failure event occurs.

When you choose to send notifications for these events, you must also specify the email server to use to send the notification messages, the email accounts to send and receive the messages, and the subject text for the messages. The email accounts you specify must be valid email accounts that your SMTP server recognizes.

The SMTP server that sends email notifications is configured on the System Settings page Configuration tab. For more information, see Configure WebBlocker Server System Settings.

To configure notifications settings for your WebBlocker Server:

  1. Select > Administration > Administration > Server Management.

    The Server Management page appears with the Status tab selected.
  2. Select the Configuration tab.

    The Configuration page appears with the General tab selected.
  3. Select the Notifications tab.
