Use this page to specify Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) settings that enable report server e-mail delivery from the report server. You can use the Report Server E-Mail delivery extension to distribute reports or report processing notifications through e-mail subscriptions. The Report Server E-Mail delivery extension requires an SMTP server and an e-mail address to use in the From: field.
Specifies the e-mail address to use in the From: field of a generated e-mail. You must specify a user account that has permission to send mail from the SMTP server.
Current SMTP Delivery Method
Specifies that report server e-mail is routed through an SMTP server. This is the only delivery method that you can specify in the Reporting Services Configuration tool.
An alternative delivery method is to use a local SMTP service pickup directory. You can use this delivery method if a network SMTP service is not available. To specify a local SMTP service pickup directory, you must edit the RSReportServer.config file. If you edit the configuration file to use a local SMTP service pickup directory, the Reporting Services Configuration tool sets the Delivery method option to custom to indicate that the delivery method is specified in the configuration file.
