Email interfaces use SMTP and POP email services to transfer messages between two HL7Connect systems.

Settings

The normal port for POP is 110. If you need to specify a different port, you can append it to the address with a colon, like this: 127.0.0.1:10023.

Field    Description
SMTP Server   

The network name, or IP address, of the SMTP server to connect to when sending email. The network name must be resolvable by DNS.

The normal port for SMTP is 25. If you need to specify a different port, you can append it to the address with a colon, like this: 127.0.0.1:10023.

The email server must be configured to relay email for the combination of sender's email and IP address, and the destination email address. NOTE: Contact your network administrator for further details of this procedure.

Destination    The email address of the POP account that the other HL7Connect will be checking for messages.
Source Email    The address used as the source of the e-mail, can be left blank, however, SMTP Servers often require valid email addresses.

If the interface is encrypted using PGP, then the PGP restrictions on the email address also apply.

POP Server    The network name, or IP address, of the POP server that hosts the POP account for this interface. A POP account must exist, and the name of the POP server must be resolvable by DNS.
Poll Frequency    How often the interface checks for new mail on the POP Server

POP Account
and
POP Password

   Account details relating to the POP server
Email Timeout    The interface assumes that the other HL7Connect system is no longer messaging after the period of time selected has elapsed. This can be a considerable length of time.
