Hello Husain,

Basically this means that the SMTP settings on the Setup > System Administration > Notification Delivery page are not correct, or that the connection is blocked via a firewall inbetween. For instance a wrong port, wrong security setting or the mail server does not allow SMTP relaying from this PRTG host.

Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
