Configure an SMTP Server

In order for GlobalCapture to send emails out, you must configure an SMTP server. This can be done by modifying the SMTP keys in the Square9.GlobalCapture.exe.config file (located by default in C:\GetSmart\CaptureServices\GlobalCapture_1). Do not put workflows with Email Nodes into production without first configuring and testing SMTP. No configuration or an invalid configuration will result in errors during processing.

The Square9.GlobalCapture.exe.config file.
