    Hello Brocade Champs,


    Good Evening.


    We have brocade 6520 (FOS v7.1.1) in my environment. We manage using CLI & Webtools since we did not purchase BNA. I want to set up smtp alerts especially for E ports and some other fabric watch monitoring parameters.


    The details are here -


    Recipient Email Address:

    Switch is part of prod Domain: prod.sys.pri

    SMTP is in different domain:


    SMTP will only relay email to above email address if source email address is from domain "". The device itself may be integrated with some other DNS server. It's working for all other devices in my environment.


    I tried using "fwmailcfg" command and able to configure relay host IP Address (option 6). but I'm not sure what to configure in domain name which it asks in next step.


    e.g. I mentioned


    now, when I tried to send email, it says email message is queued up.


    Please help in configuring SMTP email alerts. thanks in advance.


    Kind Regards,
