Some SMTP servers will require various forms of authentication. One form is to authenticate based upon the sender’s e-mail address. This is the same as the Return Address. Therefore, it would be best to change the Return e-mail address to an address that matches the server’s domain. Another form of authentication is a user name and password.
Step 1: Log into yourand click on Configuration. Go to Advanced > Mail & FTP and fill out the information.
- SMTP (mail) server 1 = address of the DESTINATION SMTP server (SMTP server that hosts the destination address). Example – smtp.west.cox.net
- SMTP login name 1 = user name of a valid account on SMTP server
- SMTP password 1 = password of the valid user name on SMTP server
- Recipient e-mail address = destination e-mail address.
- Sender e-mail address = who is sending the e-mail.
Please note that SMTP #2 is for backup purposes. If the first address fails, the second will take over. Return e-mail address = e-mail address that will be notified in the event of a failed to send. If you do not want to enter a return e-mail address, put a fake address in this field. You MUST enter a valid e-mail address format (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the pictures will not send.
In order for the SMTP authentication to work, the D-Link DNS fields must be from your ISP, not the router´s IP address.
Step 2: Go to Tools > Applications.
Step 3: Set desired schedule for recording; ex. All the time except for the above schedule
Step 4: Select Event Operation.
Step 5: Under Trigger Condition select which window you want to Detect motion in: the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd motion detection boxes depending on how many you created from the motion detection screen.
Step 6: Under Trigger Action select the box next to Upload snapshots while motion detected.
Step 7: Select Send snapshots by e-mail.
Step 8: Click Apply.
NOTE: This camera does not have the option to change SMTP options. The SMTP server must use standard SMTP port 25 and you will be unable to connect to an e that uses SSL authentication.
