E-mail Settings - Reporting Services Native mode Configuration Manager
Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview
Use the E-mail Settings page of the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to configure a Native mode report server for Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) e-mail delivery. You can use the Report Server E-Mail delivery extension to distribute Reporting Services 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.
Additional configuration settings can be used to further customize e-mail subscriptions, including settings that restrict mail server hosts and rendering extension availability. You cannot specify these settings in the Reporting Services Configuration Manager. To configure the additional settings, edit the RSReportServer.config file. For more information, see Configure a Report Server for E-Mail Delivery (SSRS Configuration Manager) and Reporting Services Configuration Files in SQL Server Books Online.
Applies to: Reporting Services Native mode.
- Sender Address
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. The value you type for the “sender address” is saved in the <From> field in the rsreportserver.config file.
- 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 Manager.
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 Manager sets the Delivery method option to custom to indicate that the delivery method is specified in the configuration file.
In the configuration file, the delivery method is set through the SendUsing configuration setting. For more information about specifying the SendUsing setting, see Configure a Report Server for E-Mail Delivery (SSRS Configuration Manager).
- SMTP Server
Specify the SMTP server or gateway to use. You can use a local server or an SMTP server on your network.
