Email from SEPM using Internal SMTP

Created: 11 Jan 2013 • Updated: 11 Jan 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a number of sites with SEPM and have appreciated that on NEW deployments of version 12 the application emails me even if I do not specify an email server.  It asks who to notify and lo and behold, email starts to flow.  This is true of the Small Business and the Enterprise product.  I just upgraded an existing site (ie. not a new deployment) from 11.5 to 12.1.  It won't send me email notifications unless I specify a server.  Yet a new installation of the same software will send notifications using some internal mechanism.  How can I make my upgrade work the same way?  Do I have to specify a mail server on the upgrade?

SEPM 12.1 can act as a mail relay. I don't believe this was the case in 11.x.

I don't believe there is an option to do this when upgrading from 11.x to 12.1 so you would need to manually enter the SEPMs IP when setting up email alerts after the upgrade to 12.1 completes.
