If your SMTP server requires a userid and password in order to send emails which most do these days, you can configure your application server or process scheduler in the smtp section to handle this.
1. Determine what Authentication Username and Password to use that is known to the SMTP Server
2. Update the SMTP Section of Application Server and/or Process Scheduler’s configuration file, psappsrv.cfg and/or psprcs.cfg respectively, with the following variable values;
SMTPUserName = User who can log into SMTP Server, researched in #1 above.
SMTPUserPassword = * Password of the User who can log into SMTP Server, researched in #1 above.
SMTPUserName1 = Repeat value entered for SMTPUserName above.
SMTPUserPassword1 = Repeat value entered for SMTPUserPassword above.
3. Reconfigure the server, and restart.
*PT 8.50/8.51 – password is clear/plain text.
*PT 8.52/8.53 – password is encrypted using the PSCipher utility.
