I want to know how email task can be configured in informatica so that at the end of a workflow,I can add an email task
I don't use Outlook for sending/receiving emails and like to receive email in hotmail/gmail(web email)
Please let me know what all settings need to be added in the admin console
Do I need to install Microsoft IIS Server or some other HTTP server for configuring the email task
Any response for this is highly appreciable
I am also looking for this. How can i configure this in admin console or where i must configure to use email task
It depends on your Server machine configuration. It is the PowerCenter server machine that will send e-mails. Is your server Win XP?
1. If your server is on Windows, you can use Outlook or Lotus notes client used on that machine.
2. If it is non Windows, you can use something like rmail to send e-mail.
I hope it helps.
Thanks for your reply.Can you give me any example email task which your created.
Please let me know how can we configure the SMTP settings in Informatica admin side.Please give me your clear explanation.
Finallly did you get any solutions for the problem of sending mail without ms outlook?
i am facing problem.. if have solution then please share to me.
Arvind and others,
Guys as per in my current project, where we initially used it on an outlook we have updated to configure it directly with the SMTP server, here its the same as what Praveen has mentioned in the Admin console under your Domain -> Properties, we need to give the below infomration,
Host (SMTP server name) - something like "servername.domiantype(internal).domainname.com"
we do not have an authentication required here and this should be working good. Please give a try.

Emails from Informatica Power Center can only be sent via a email server.
In an enterprise environment there are email servers setup like Microsoft exchange..etc. We can use open source email server to achive the same in non
enterprise environment.One of the best light weight email server is "hMail server" which can be setup on our own machine
and can help Informatica PC to send emails.
Please follow the below link for detailed instructions:
Please note that to recieve emails on "gmail" or others you may need to do additional configurations to "hMail server".
hope this might help you.
thanks and regards...
