E-mail Settings (Reporting Services Configuration)
Use this page to specify Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) settings that enable the Report Server E-Mail delivery extension. You can use Report Server E-Mail 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.
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 tool. To configure the additional settings, you must manually edit the RSReportServer.config file. For more information, see Configuring a Report Server for E-Mail Delivery and Reporting Services Configuration Files.
This feature is not supported in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services. For more information about feature availability in the Express edition, see Reporting Services in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services in SQL Server Books Online.
- Sender E-mail
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.
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.
In the configuration file, the delivery method is set through the SendUsing configuration setting. For more information about specifying the SendUsing setting, see Configuring a Report Server for E-Mail Delivery.
- SMTP Server
Select the SMTP server or gateway to use. You can use a local server or an SMTP server on your network.
