- Retry delay (minutes): the number of minutes between each attempt to send an email (default = 5).
- Notify on failure (warning): if an email fails to send, a warning can be created in the alarm function to show this failure. The warning requires acknowledgement by a user to confirm failure of emails has been seen/reviewed.
- Action notes can be added to this warning to give an audit trail in the event of failure. These feature is disabled by default; To enable this an Alarm Profile must have been created to allow the enable action to be completed, see Alarm Profiles.
- Send Heartbeat: The D3 email can be set to send a heartbeat notification each day (at circa 8.00am) to show the email server and D3 is operational.
