Sending e-mail from mikrotik

Tue Mar 06, 2007 1:09 pm

Hi I have implemented the script for an automated backup of the mikrotik and the automated sending of this backup to my e-mail.

My own smtp server is set with high security for all accounts and therefore needs username and password for smtp access (no exceptions)

is it possible to have mikrotik logon with username and password for smtp access and if not does anyone know of an smtp server I can use for this.

might be a nice addition for future versions

Not possible right now.
But if you are sending to an destination e-mail address that's hosted on the server you send to, you shouldn't be required to authenticate (as otherwise almost no-one on the internet could send e-mail to you).

SMTP-Auth is a long-standing feature request, though, yes... ;)
