ZENworks 11 SP2 has a new feature that allows the users to test if the email server has been configured correctly or not. The user can enter the email addresses to the required fields and then select the Send test email button, which will send a mail to the user.
This new feature will help prevent patch subscription failure. There was previously no option to test whether the email had been configured correctly. The notification process is shown below:
Figure 1-5 Send Test Email
This email notification page allows you to configure the email notification options when the patch management server detects a new patch. The next time the patch management server detects a new patch, the recipients will receive an email informing them of the same.
