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

  mailhub smtp.gmail.com:587

  rewrite-domain bigip1.f5lab.com

}

 

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.
