Orchestrator 2012 R2 – Send Email Activity

I often like to notify myself or another team of the success or failure of a runbook via e-mail and it has become very important in a number of my runbooks. These steps walk through how to use the activity.

1. Drag the activity over from the activity pane

SendMail_1

2. Enter the e-mail’s details, trying to make use of variables or published data where possible (right-click in a field)

SendMail_2

3. Enter the e-mail’s connection information, which will be the e-mail address to be sent from, and the SMTP server that you can send the e-mail from. Variables are being used here.

SendMail_3

4. Enter the security credentials information, an account that has the rights to send the e-mail from the SMTP server. Variables are being used here.

SendMail_4
