PCIe RAID controllers with onboard ethernet port, there have two ways available to generate alert emails: through onboard ethernet port and through the archttp proxy utility. Email using controller onboard ethernet port can be configured through the 'Alert by Mail Configuration' feature in web manager console, the System Control menu. This feature works only if the onboard ethernet port had been properly configured. The email using archttp is configured through the archttp buildin mail configure page. This feature works through the motherboard ethernet port. You must make sure your OS did not block the SMTP port.
