Configure mail Recipient in Vcenter

Configure mail Recipient in Vcenter

I need to create email notifications for alarms generated in Vcenter.
under Vcenter server settings, when selecting Mail, I see the SMTP server and sender, but I do not see where to configure the user who should receive notifications.
any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Specify email recipients through the Alarm Settings dialog box when you configure alarm actions.

Then you want to do it this way...

Before vCenter Server can send email, you must perform the following tasks:
 ¦  Configure the SMTP server settings for vCenter Server or Microsoft Outlook Express.
 ¦  Specify email recipients through the Alarm Settings dialog box when you configure alarm actions.

To perform this task, the vSphere Client must be connected to a vCenter Server.
