Drobo alerts with GMail

So you have a drobo and you want to be able to receive E-Mail alerts. It is a very good idea to set up E-Mail alerts so that you know if you have a problem with your Drobo, such as a hard drive failing.

What you need to do is click on “Device Settings” then select “Alerts”

You then put your E-Mail address that you want the alerts sent to.  The “To” E-Mail address does not have to be the same as the GMail E-Mail but it can be if you want. The from E-Mail address can be what ever you want it to be.

Set the Mail server as “smtp.gmail.com”  Port as “587”

Select your Language.

I suggest reeving all E-Mail alerts, can never be too sure.

The “Authentication” part is important.  Make sure that you  put your E-Mail address and password in just as if you where logging into GMail.
