E-Mail settings in LiveStream can be enabled in one of two ways. The two options are at the foot of the E-Mail settings window and are configured thus:
This option allows you to set up LiveStream to send notifications via your SMTP server. If you don't have one then it is possible to sign up to a service like SendGrid sendgrid.com
Your SMTP server. This can be IP or DNS name e.g: smtp.myserver.com
The port your SMTP provider uses. This could be a variety of different numbers from 25 for non SSL to 465 for SSL. Check with your SMTP provider.
Tick this if your provider requires a secure connection.
The username required to access your SMTP server account.
The password required to access your SMTP server account.
The name that will appear on the sent e-mails. You can leave this blank and the e-mail you provide in the From E-Mail field will be used instead.
The e-mail address which these e-mails will be from.
Subject when silence detected
E-mail subject when silence is detected e.g: Silence Detected
Subject when audio returns
E-mail subject when audio has returned e.g: Audio Returned
Send to E-Mail
E-mail address to send these notifications to. For multiple emails simply separate addresses with a comma e.g: email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Send through PlayoutONE Monitor
This option allows you to leverage Monitor to handle the e-mail notifications. Useful if you've already set up Monitor to do this as it means you don't have to enter all your SMTP details in again in LiveStream, and if any detail changes like your SMTP password, then you only need to update it in Monitor.
This is the server you want to connect to including the SQL instance (default localhost\P1SQLExpress).
The database you want to connect to (default PlayoutONE_Standard).
The e-mail address that notifications are sent to e.g: email@example.com
Multi Station (PlayoutONE Pro only)
If you have a multi station setup then the station you want to deal with will be listed here. You just need to select it.
