Verify that Email is Working


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


Check if the email settings are working properly by using this procedure. The appliance uses emails for sending critical notifications to ThoughtSpot Support.

ThoughtSpot sends alerts to the email address specified during installation. If no email address was entered, no alerts will be sent. But you can add an email to receive alerts by issuing:
$ tscli smtp set-mailname <alert_email>

To verify that the send email function is working correctly:

  1. Log In to the Linux Shell Using SSH.
  2. Try sending an email to yourself by issuing:
    $ echo | mail -s Hello <your_email>
  3. If you receive the email at the address you supplied, email is working correctly.
