    SOLUS 3 and Office 365

    Email settings in Solus 3 seem rather limited - can't use any secure SMTP server, therefore can't use O365 to send emails?

    Is there something I'm missing or an oversight from Capita?

    I believe you can setup a local SMTP relay - it's useful for other things too. It's also worth asking your LA\ISP if they have a SMTP relay you can use.

    Cheers, was rather hoping I wouldn't have to do that. Solus3 isn't the only thing though, we're in the same boat with an older piece of backup software (Veeam) but perhaps something that needs looking at, @PhilNeal

    To be honest, I'm surprised they actual put in SMTP at all, my money would have been you'd need InTouch to send emails!!

    Hah! Better still, remembered our ISP's SMTP relay.
    Surely that works? No, because Solus for some reasons REQUIRES you to enter a username and password for it!

    Just enter anything for the user \ pass. I'm not saying I ever put in something stupid in, but you could probably guess what time I'd configured it by what I put in as the fake password. The practicle answer would be to put annoymous for both.

    Doesn't work, as the SMTP server rejects it

    **

    Edit - OK, it does, but someone has naffed up the UI.

    It says "sender email" - oddly that SHOULD say "recipient email" !
