How to configure SMTP settings on F5 15.x for sending out email notifications?

How can we set up the SMTP on f5 running 15.x software version?


I have the following config in place:


(tmos)# list sys outbound-smtp

sys outbound-smtp {

  from-line-override disabled





I have also modified the user_alert.conf file and added many scripts for sending an email for pool members going down/SSL cert expiration etc. But nothing is working.


Thanks in advance!

  • Hello Amandeep.


    outbound-smtp section is still pending to support Authentication and TLS.


    To workaround this, you can still use the configuration file /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf, but take into account that this config will be removed after every reboot.

      Regarding reboot- and software update safe, is the standard tmsh configuration for outbound-smtp persistend?

      Thank you!
