HP MSA 2012i “Error sending e-mail”

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

If you are trying to setup the e-mail notification and are receiving “Error sending e-mail” every time you click on “Test Send e-mail” I may have a solution. Follow the below instructions.

Manage -> Event Notification -> email configuration

Email Address –
Email Comment – VMware Storage MSA 2012i
Mail Server –
Domain Name –
Sender Name – Alerts
Email Notification Enable – Enabled

You may have to allow anonymous relay from the IP Address of the MSA as well.

Good Luck!
