Email Configuration Panel

The Email Configuration Panel provides information about email configuration settings in the netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > System > Email Configuration panel. NetWitness Platform XDR sends notifications to users with email about various system events. To be able to configure these email notifications, first configure the SMTP email server (See Configure Email Servers and Notification Accounts).

The Email Configuration panel provides a way to:

  • Configure the email server.
  • Set up an email account to receive notifications.
  • View statistics on email operations.


This workflow shows the necessary procedures to configure and verify Email Panel.
