Configuring the E-mail Server

(Optional) Specify the e-mail server for SAP Control Center to use to send e-mail alert notifications.

Launch SAP Control Center and log in using an account with administrative privileges. (The login account or its group must have sccAdminRole.)
  1. From the application’s menu bar, select Application > Administration.
  2. Select General Settings.
  3. Click the E-mail tab.
  4. Enter the name of the e-mail server through which SAP Control Center will send alert notifications.
  5. Change the default e-mail server port only in consultation with your e-mail administrator.
  6. (Optional) Click Customize e-mail settings to display options for setting the domain name and e-mail sender for alert e-mail notifications.
  7. (Optional) Enter your domain name (for example,
    Most e-mail servers do not require SCC to provide an explicit domain name. Try providing a domain name here if your first attempt to configure e-mail alerts fails.
  8. (Optional) Change the default e-mail sender name.
    This name appears in the "From" field of SCC e-mail alert messages. Do not use spaces; use hyphens or underscore characters instead.
    Tip: If you have multiple SCC servers, configure their sender names so you can tell which SCC an alert is coming from. For example, SybaseControlCenter_Boston or SCC_test11.
  9. (Optional) If you entered anything in the E-mail Domain name or E-mail sender name fields, click Apply to make the test e-mail option reappear.
  10. (Optional) To dispatch a test message, enter an e-mail address in the Test e-mail address field and click Send.
    If the test e-mail is received, you have properly configured the server for e-mail alert notifications.
  11. Click OK (to apply the change and close the properties dialog) or Apply (to apply the change and leave the dialog open).
(Optional) Configure automatic logout.
