Problem receiving email

Path Finder

Our splunk server (indexer and search head) runs on Windows platform. We configured a remote PDF Server URL that points to a splunk pdfserver running at Linux. The status page testing showed that the PDF file can be generated and displayed correctly. I then configured to schedule a PDF delivery for a dashboard report. However, I've problem receiving the emails. The system administrator confirmed that connection from the Splunk server is spotted at the SMTP server log.

Here's the extract of the python.log. How can I troubleshoot further, and to confirm if it's a Splunk or SMTP server problem?

The problem is solved by adding "from = " to $SPLUNK/etc/system/local/alert_actions.conf file ([email] section)

I've also tested sending email via telnet at the splunk server. The result is positive. Email can be received in this case. So the problem lies at Splunk?
