Backup Smtp Server?

by Nov 20, 2012

Hi there,

I'm sure this comes up a lot, but I didn't find anything on the forum to fully answer my question… How can you configure UpTime 7.1 with a backup SMTP server? I have it configured right now to send alerts (and SMS via email) through my Exchange 2007 server, but what happens if this is one of the systems that goes down? Is there a way to use say Google's public SMTP service to send out these alerts?
