Hello Kaibloom, thanks a lot for posting your question at Intel communities.
If your issue is related to authentication, bear in mind that the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology does not provide this kind of feature.
On how enabling e-mail notifications, please access the Help tab on the tool and choose preference. It will give you additional information on this.
thanks for responding. I have already been to this page you have outlined. It helped me get to where I was not receiving instant failures with the test email facility. But it has no further help to offer as to why the configuration it outlines does not work once the correct data has been input. I can not find any reference on Intel or Lenovo sites to explain why, having input the correct data in the Email Preferences, the test email does not send and merely stays In Progress without completing the send function.
can you send me a private message with the SMTP host you are using?
I’m going to report this to the corresponding team so they can replicate the issue.
I will let you know once I receive information from them.
