Sending File Search E-Mail Notifications

VX Search Ultimate and VX Search Server provide the ability to send E-Mail notifications when a search operation finds a user-specified number of files. This feature is especially useful for periodic search operations performed automatically at specific time intervals and intended to detect specific types or categories of files in enterprise storage systems.

Conditional File Search Actions

In order to enable E-Mail notifications for a search operation, open the search profile dialog, select the 'Advanced' tab, enable conditional actions, set the number of file search results to trigger the action, select the 'E-Mail Notification' action type and enter an e-mail address to send notifications to.

Conditional File Search Action Notification

E-Mail notifications will be send using the SMTP e-mail account configured in the options dialog. In order to configure the SMTP account, open the options dialog, select the 'E-Mail' tab, enter the host name or the IP address of the SMTP server, enter the TCP/IP port number, enter the name of the user account, password and the source E-Mail address that should be used by VX Search in E-Mail notifications.
