RE: Email notifications from Dell OpenManage?

My Win Server 2008 R2 is running on .NET Framework 3.5.1. Do I need to upgrade to .NET 4.5.2 (from Windows updates) in order for DellSMTPNotify to work? I do not get push emails but if I open CMD and perform a test manually, I do get them. Please help if you can. Thanks.

It's not required. Because the app is quite old, so .NET 3.5.1 is definitely enough.

Hi FCalderon,


Just in case if you still unable to receive alert email, I'd suggest to send DellSMTPNotify output to text file. Simply add >> path\filename.txt in the end of command. In case if it's empty (in my case means successfully sent) so try to capture telnet to your SMTP server and port.

Try Mail Alert Simple Mailer:

sourceforge.net/.../mail-alert

It supports SSL,TLS and StartTLS so you can configure your gmail and unlike other similar commandline mailing tools it stores email password in encrypted form. I started to use it on my Windows Server 2008 R2 to monitor Windows Events and OMSA alerts. It is working like a charm.

I downloaded from

xyfon.com/tech-tips/setup-emnail-notifications-dell-openmnage

I expanded it into C:\DellSMTPNotify

I see the file CellSMTPNotify.exe

I can run it from Explorer and a command prompt windows opens briefly.

However, when I run it from and Administrator Command Prompt, it says there is no .bat or executable of that name????

So how does one actually get OMSA to use Mail Alert?  I have set up Mail Alert and did the command line test successfully.  Just don't know how to make OMSA use it.
