Allow configuration of SMTP alert parameters for Event Framework
Currently alert emails sent via Event Framework are send with fixed SMTP port 25.
Since more and more companies have special requirements for SMTP mail traffic it would be great if the SMTP parameters like port, authentication etc. could be configured for example by using a B2B mail adapter configuration.
This would also make mail sending configuration consistent between Event Framework and Business Processes.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Currently alerts from DBMonitoring BP can't be send successfully since the company mail server doesn't allow connection on port 25, only secure port 587 is allowed.
We therefor don't receive alerts in case of DB limit exceed.
Making the SMTP port configurable would allow us to receive those standard SI DB alerts.
