QV Email and Gmail SMTP

Hi All,

Anyone know how to configure the mail settings for using gmail smtp? I configure the mail server settings in User Preference -> Mail. I tried all the authentication method, but it doesn't work (no SSL or TLS option in the authentication method). This is for sending an Alert email.

Yes, or you can pull them in from a field in a table or Excel.

Hi Bill,

I saw your post and modified config file like below to send alert mail using gmail account.

<add key="UseSSLForSMTP" value="true"/>


Test mail was sent out successfully at QMC, but alert mail was not sent out when reload failed.

Below is the log for alert mail.


0486055 Information           Task Execute Duration=00:00:00.2502352

0486055 Information           Sending Alert mail

2841418 Warning  Failed to send mail to test@xxx.com

  Any suggestion?

Hi Ayano,

Did you manage to resolve this issue? I am struggling with the same challenge - using Gmail, test email sends out ok, but when a task fails this doesn't happen and I can also see the "Failed to send mail to..." line in the task log.

Many thanks,

Aleksandar

Hi,

Just in case someone else faces the same challenge. We resolved this issue. We also needed to change the Distribution Service configuration - file “QVDistributionService.exe.config” in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service. The change was the same as for the Management Service config above.

The QlikView Server version in this case is 11.2 SR12.
