Note

url

A valid URL name, such as http://server_name

No

A valid URL to a Web application.

Remarks

The outgoing e-mail feature uses an outbound Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service to relay e-mail alerts and notifications.

Outgoing e-mail support can be enabled at both the server farm level (available from the Operations section of Central Administration) and at the Web application level (available from the Application Management section of Central Administration). Therefore, when the url parameter is used, you can specify different settings for a specific Web application.

Outgoing e-mail settings at the Web application level override those set up at the server farm level.

Examples

To configure e-mail settings for a specific Web application, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o email -outsmtpserver mail.example.com -fromaddress someone@example.com -replytoaddress someone@example.com -codepage 65001 -url http://server\_nam

To configure e-mail settings for the entire farm, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o email -outsmtpserver mail.example.com -fromaddress someone@example.com -replytoaddress someone@example.com -codepage 65001
