Re: Configure Qlikview mail server?

Hi,

Check with your admin team for

Port Number

Host Name

From Addresss(Decide yourself like QlikviewSupport@maildomain.com)

Email Format: HTML

Now in System-> Setup-> Qlikview server -> Alerts -> Give the list of Email IDs to send the email

If you have publisher -> Then

System-> Setup-> Distribution Service-> Alert Email-> Give list of email IDs separated by ;

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Jagan.
