The Alert submenu lets you configure the FortiVoice Gateway to notify selected users (including administrators) by email when specific types of events occur and are logged. For example, if you require notification about system activity event detections, you can have the FortiVoice Gateway send an alert email message whenever the FortiVoice Gateway detects a system activity event.
To set up alerts, you must configure both the alert email recipients (see Configuring alert recipients) and which event categories will trigger an alert email message (see Configuring alert categories).
Alert email messages also require that you supply the FortiVoice Gateway with the IP address of at least one DNS server. The FortiVoice Gateway uses the domain name of the SMTP server to send alert email messages. To resolve this domain name into an IP address, the FortiVoice Gateway must be able to query a DNS server. For information on DNS, see Configuring DNS.
