Alerting

Why is my scheduled alert not sending email?

I have a scheduled alert configured and I am not receiving any email from it. The search is valid and matches records. I have the proper permissions. Alert history shows 'successful' result and job inspection shows e-mail was sent.

Where is my email?

Check your TLS setting.

In this case, it was found that the "TLS" delivery had been set for email settings. No credentials or target defined.

Reset the TLS delivery to "none" and that restored e-mail flow from Search Head
