Using the Fortinet email server for sending alerts

By default, FortiClient Cloud uses the Fortinet built-in email server to send email alerts. This eliminates the need to specify your own SMTP/mail server before sending alert emails. You only need to configure the recipient email addresses.

If desired, you can still manually specify your own SMTP server.

To configure email settings:
  1. In FortiClient Cloud, go to System Settings > SMTP Server.

  2. By default, Fortinet is selected as Mail Server. Configure recipients and test recipient settings as desired. Save.

The following shows an example alert email. The sender email address is no-reply@notification.fortinet.net.
