    Field/Item Description
    Settings Used By Server and SMU
    Profile Name Select a name for the profile being created.
    Note: The SupportProfile cannot be disabled or deleted and it is not possible to add a new profile with this name. On a NAS module, use this profile to ensure that emails are sent to the same recipients by both file and block.
    Enable Profile Select the check box to enable the profile, or leave it inactive.
    Send HTML Emails Select this check box to receive emails in HTML format. HTML emails are easier to read compared to plain text mails, and this provides easy access to the web UI, because the server name in the email is clickable.
    Add Recipient Enter the email address of the recipient to be added to the profile. Click Add to add the specified recipient to the list of recipients for this email profile.
    Recipients Displays a list of email addresses that will receive emails based on this profile. To delete a recipient from the list, select the email address and click X.
    Server-Specific Settings
    Send a Daily Status Email at Midnight By default, the Send a Daily Status Email at Midnight check box is selected. Detailed emails containing logs of server performance and battery health, descriptive information regarding the health of the server and storage subsystem, and the current space utilization of the file systems will be sent to the specified recipient. To avoid sending daily status emails, clear the check box.
    Uuencode Diagnostic Emails Select this check box to uuencode the email attachments sent with the mail that the server automatically sends when it restarts after an unplanned shutdown. This message contains diagnostic information that may help recipients to identify the cause of the problem. By uuencoding the message any virus scanning software at the recipient's site will be bypassed.
    Max. Email Length Limit the size of the email by specifying the maximum number of bytes it can contain. It must be stated numerically, such as: 32768.
    Exclude Attachments Select this check box to prevent attachments from being sent when daily summary emails are sent.
    Disclose Server Details in Emails By default, the Disclose Server Details in Emails check box is selected. Detailed emails containing restricted or confidential information (account names, IP addresses, portions of user data, an so forth) will be sent to the specified recipient. To avoid sending detailed emails, clear the check box.
    Email Intro Text Custom text to add to the body of the email. You can use this text field to add information or comments to the body of the email. If you are sending HTML emails, you can add basic HTML formatting (italics, bold, new lines and paragraphs, and so on) to the email, and the additional text will be displayed according to the formatting you entered.
