When you create tasks in Patch Manager, you have the option to configure email notifications for when the task is finished. For this option to work, you need to configure SMTP settings on the Patch Manager server.

To configure SMTP settings on the Patch Manager server:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Patch Manager System Configuration > Patch Manager Servers, and then select Application Servers.
  2. In the upper-center pane, select the Patch Manager server.
  3. In the lower-center pane, click the Application Server Settings tab.
  4. Filter the Category column for Email Configuration:
    1. On the Category column, click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/PatchManager_Admin_Guide_MT/030/0E0/03000003.png.
    2. Select Email Configuration.
  5. Select each of the settings in the Email Configuration category, and then click Modify Setting in the Actions pane (right) to open a dialog for that setting.
  6. Modify the settings as appropriate, and then click OK to close the dialog. For additional information, see "Email Configuration".
