i-doit is capable of sending e-mails automatically in the case of specific events or states.


The configuration is essential when the i-doit controller (CLI) is used with the notifications or workflows. Otherwise no e-mails can be sent!

The integration of a mail server is possible in the Administration under System settings. A configuration mask with the following fields is available there:



Name of the host or the IP address of the mail server.


25 is the standard port. The port has to be changed accordingly for an encrypted connection or deviating configuration.


Sending e-mail address for e-mail dispatch


Sender name for e-mail dispatch
