Configure E-mail Notification component in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1

In order to send Alert notifications or Reports via E-mail we need to make some configurations in the Console and in SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

In the Administration section select the Site Configuration folder and click Sites.

In the Ribbon click Configure Site Components and select E-mail Notification.


Enter the details for the SMTP connection, and test that it works.


Click Ok, and you are done in the Configuration Manager Console.

Onwards to glory! Almost…

Open SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

Click E-mail Settings and enter the SMTP details in here.


Click Ok, and you are done in the SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

Onwards to glory! Almost…

A last thing is that the Service SQL Server Agent must be running in order to support this. So you need to open Services and set the service to started and Startup to Automatic.


Onwards to glory! And into the sunset…
