Making TC sending e-mails easily

Hi guys,
What is the easiest way to make TC send e-mails?
Like if an item is released or a new revision is saved, send e-mail to following e-mail addresses etc.
An exchange server needed on the same server? Or can a POP3 system be used with some settings..

Hi,

 

1. Emails should be send with notification when an revision will be released (or getting some status).

2. If you want send email outside Teamcenter, then you should have SMTP server.

If you already have a mail server setup make sure the Teamcenter server is enable for mail sending.

 

You can do a manual test as below. There is alot of pages describing this like   https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/323350

 

Open command prompt and type following:

telnet [mail sserver name] 25

helo

mail from:[type and email adress with your domain]

rcpt to:[Your email adress]

data

[type a short message,  end with . CTRL]

 

Your email should now be send and you shall recive it  in your mailbox.

 

If this works then enable Subscription Manager through TEM setup.

Then you check that preference Mail_server_name is defined correct and add email adress on each Person in Organization.

Now the user can subscribe to different events so read more in Teamcenter documentation about it.

 

 

Re: Making TC sending e-mails easily

Hi guys, thanks for the answers.

 

There is no mail server in the company.

They are using an external company to host their e-mails.

 

The first need is just sending e-mails to the users in TC only. Internal notification.

 

2nd, is it possible to make TC connect to the external mail hosting company to send e-mails?

While it may be possible to connect Teamcenter to an external smtp server I'm not sure that I'd recommend it due to the security risks. Better would be to stand up an internal smtp server for this purpose instead. Check out hMailServer (https://www.hmailserver.com/).

Hello,

 

Randy's solution is the right way to send emails outside TC. If you want send with external server (on your provider) then you should have mail server without authentication, and this is the best source for spammer attack Smiley Sad
