RFE: Support for authenticated SMTP for alerts
Last modified: 2014-05-05 17:40:14 EDT
RHQ should support user/password SMTP authentication for sending alerts.
On an modern environment, isn't typical to have an "open relay" for sending the email alerts.
Deploying an MTA on local machine exclusively for relaying the email isn't exactly an user friendly operation.
This bug was previously known as http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-2151
This needs ssl support too
this is in our mail-service.xml - it needs to be paramaterized and the user/password should be added to rhq-server.properties
Per triage, we should be looking at SSL here too.
Lowering prio. This is still very desirable, but not urgent.
a) the setup has been changed since RHQ 4.6 with the new EAP6 container
b) this is for the upstream RHQ project, which is happy to accept patches :-)
