SolarWinds Mail Assure: October 29th Features and Updates Release

What’s new this week:

Improvements to Automatic Email Scout Reports
When creating a scheduled Email Scout Report, you’re now able to choose between sending to a specific recipient, or to all mailboxes for the domain (an automatic ESR). This allows customization of the automatic ESR, rather than the fixed automatic ESR available from the Domain Settings page – you can adjust the template that’s used, the columns that are included, the filters that define the report, the subject and sender of the email, and have access to the same extensive scheduling configuration as for a single report.

When a mailbox has an Email Scout Report automatically added, an introductory email is sent to the mailbox, explaining what to expect. You’re now able to change the template used for these messages and add/edit templates – you can find this functionality in the (preview) Email Scout Reports Templates page, in a new ‘Automatic Email Scout Report Activation Messages’ tab. All of the usual template editing functionality is available.

The ‘Email Scout Reports’ page also gains a new tab – ‘Automatic Email Scout Reports’. From here, you can see the existing automatic ESR that are configured (note that these are the rules that define creation of ESR, not the actual ESR themselves, which are found on the existing first tab), and remove any that should no longer be active.
