SonicWall - Turn off emailing alerts

Posted on 2007-10-05
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a sonicwall 3060 and I recently entered my email settings so it will send me the log. It works fine but it also sends me MANY MANY MANY separate emails saying ***Alert from SonicWall *** How can I turn off emailing alerts since they are in the log anyway and only have it send me the log?

    I assume you're running SonicOS Enhanced?
    Go into Logs>Automation and take out the email address from the "send logs to" box. You can also go into Logs>Categories and increase the level for alerts, or un=tick some of the categories that alerts are generated for...

    Just realised that the text above should have read
    ... take out the email address from the "send ALERTS to" box ...

    But I guess you figured that bit out :-)
