Email notifications are not received when a scheduled task is completed

Updated November 15, 2017

Overview

When you create or modify scheduled task in Patch Manager, the following error message displays:

It appears that Email has not been configured and tested. Please go to Administration and Reporting > General Settings, Email Configuration, and test your configuration.
 

Additionally, Patch Manager does not notify you by email when a scheduled task is completed, even though your mail configuration settings are set correctly.

 

When these issues occur, the following error is logged in the Task Details tab:
