System administrators configure inbound and outbound email servers to handle email notifications about events involving tenants machines. System administrators can create only one inbound email server and one outbound email server. These servers are the defaults for all tenants.

About this task

If tenant administrators do not override the default email server settings before they enable notifications, vRealize Automation uses the globally configured email server.
