Email Service Configuration Parameters

Web Configuration Parameters Menu

From the Progeny Web Client Configuration, the following parameters are used to configure how Progeny Web handles email communication for the FHQ module. You are able to use any type of email system – on-premise server, open relay, authenticated relay, hosted provider…the specific type does not matter.  The Progeny Web server can connect to any SMTP-based email service using the parameters below.

    • Determines which database the email service will operate under. This will be the same value for the Connection Name of the FHQ database in the Database Connection Configuration module.
    • Sets the time interval between email service activations.
    • The minimum interval is 1 minute, 3-5 minutes recommended for most deployments.
    • Determines login process to the email server
      • 0 = unauthenticated “anonymous” connection that does not require a username or password.
      • 1 = authenticated connection, passing EMAIL_TRIGGER_SMTP_USERNAME and EMAIL_TRIGGER_SMTP_PASSWD parameters entered below.
    • Determines the “from” email address on all emails being sent.
    • This value needs to be the email address associated with the user account used when making authenticated connections to an email server to prevent emails being marked as spam or phishing.
    • The user account password when making an authenticated connection to the email server.
    • The port number for SMTP connection (usually 587 or 25).
    • The email server that Progeny Web will connect to.
    • Determines the encryption type used when connecting to the email server.
      • 0 = No encryption (encryption is not required or making an unauthenticated connection).
      • 1 = SSL encryption.
      • 2 = TLS encryption (most Exchange servers and hosted services like Gmail and Office 365 use this type).
    • The username for the account used when making an authenticated connection to the email server.
