These settings allow configuring mailer settings for delivering erasing/wiping reports to user's mailbox. Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) is responsible for transmitting e-mail messages and needs to be configured properly.

These options can be configured in the Freeware version but are available for use in the Professional version only.
