Have seen a bit of postings regarding entering the credentials for the email server to send notifications from FSRM but most has been the canned variety plagerized from one web site to another.  They do not come out and state that in order to establish a connection to an "outside the organization SMTP server", it cannot be one that requires SSL/TLS security.  I have tried a few times to get the test email to work using the office365 mail server - smtp.office365.com and sending with valid credentials.  Thes are the same credentials I have all of our MFP machines setup with to send email notifications along with the notifications from the server that performs network client backups.  Short of installing the SMTP feature which will also require the installation of IIS, is there any way to have FSRM accept a mail server that requres secure authentication?

Hi.  I was able to get this to work by installing the SMTP feature which of course installs IIS 6.  Follow the basic presentation found at http://www.vsysad.com/2017/05/install-and-configure-smtp-server-on-windows-server-2016/ and make a couple changes.  The changes are found in the properties of the IIS SMTP Virtual Server created by default when installing IIS.  Open the properties of the server, select the Genral tab then select the Advanced button and add the IP address of the server running IIS and port 587.  Select the Delivery tab, then select Outbound Security, select Basic Authentication instead of Anonymous, enter your Office365 administrator credentials and select TLS encryption.  Still in the Delivery tab, select Outbound Connections and change TCP port from 25 to 587.  Still in the Delivery tab, select Advanced and enter the Exchange online host address - smtp.office365.com and the default "From" email address needs to be your Office365 administrator email address..  When done, restart IIS & SMTP.

2nd part is in FSRM Email Notification options.  Enter the name "localhost" (without the quotes) for the SMTP server name and in the From email address, enter your Office365 administrator account email address.

I certainly hope this will be helpful to anyone that has had to struggle with this getting it to work.
