Configure the SMTP server to receive notifications

  • Hi

    I have a firewall with pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64).

    In the System –-> Advanced ---> Notifications window it is possible to configure the SMTP server to receive notifications.

    How should I configure this E-Mail service with a GMail account?



  • E-mail server:
    SMTP Port of E-mail server: 465
    Secure SMTP Connection: Enable SMTP over SSL/TLS ticked
    From E-mail address: [choose an appropriate e-mail]
    Notification E-mail address: [the e-mail you want to receive alerts on]
    Notification E-mail auth username: [GMAIL account you are authenticating with]
    Notification E-mail auth password: [password associated with the GMAIL notification account you are using]
    Notification E-mail auth mechanism: PLAIN

    If your using 2 factor with gmail you will need to setup a APP password in gmail that does not require the 2 factor.
