PRTG Update Email Notification?



How do I setup an email notification when Auto-Update has a new update ready for installation?

PRTG will already send an email to the entered email-address for the PRTG System Admin, once it detects an newer version of PRTG is available (this requires a direct connection to the Internet for the PRTG host).

best regards.

I receive no such notification. Other email notifications work fine. Where is this "new update" email notification configured?

As soon as a valid Admin-Email-Address is entered and emails for new todos are still enabled, PRTG will send out the notification about newer version. There is no explicit notification to add for this.
