Email Server Requirements

An email server is required if you are planning to use notifications. PPM can send email notifications to identify pending actions or to notify users of status changes for various packages, requests, and tasks.

PPM can integrate with any SMTP-compliant mail server, including Microsoft Exchange, UNIX sendmail, and others. For example, the following Microsoft Exchange Server versions are supported:

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

To work with these third-party products, the PPM Server needs the IP address of the email server and the logon name of one or more valid users on the email server, which the PPM Server uses as "from" addresses for its notifications.

For information about configuring the email server, see the Installation and Administration Guide.
