SMTP not needing Authentication
Posted on 2007-07-25
I install Dell storage equipment in medical facilities. The systems are configured so that any time there is a hardware problem and E-mail is generated and sent out. This happens via SMTP, however, there is no place to specify authentication settings for the SMTP server so I am not able to use any of these accounts. The only options are SMTP IP, Sending name, and recipients. Most of the IT departments allow me to send via SMTP by just allowing the IP address however, I do have a few that I cannot do this on however I do have internet access on the devices. How do other "IT professionals" go about this? I'm trying to find free SMTP servers but thats really not a good nor professional way to do it.
