SMTP MTA on the firewall itself

Hi,

Is it possible to install (any existing feature or service or script) to use the device itself as a tiny simple MTA to send its necessary emails without connecting to another MTA like exchange server or so?

 

This is possible on many devices and software.

 

Regards,

Hi @mhdganji 

 

Unfortunately, FortiGate does not have the feature of an MTA. It is only a mail client where you will need to configure a mail server in order for alert mail to work.
