It is not a good idea to do this. However if you don't care check this link:

BTW the reason to see this message is that the scheduler is using MAPI to send the e-mail. According to Ken Hamady's comparison CrystalDesk supports SMTP emails too. SMTP will not instantiate Outlook and there will be no message. Switching to SMTP will be a better solution.

I would like to use SMTP but when I configure it using either IP or name with proper credentials it does not seems to recognize the server.

This might be a bug in the program. Did you contact the developer ?

It is a bit of a fly by night outfit and I am evaluating using their free version, so support is scarce.
Anyway you are right SMTP should be the way to go.

Oh , I though you have a license for this one. You probably have your reasons to try this software, but did you try any other ?

We tried a couple of others that did work very well. Trying to keep it affordable.
