How To Stop All Email Alerts

Follow

Scope

This article explains how to stop all email alerts from either the Remote Web or the Partner Portal.

Background

Email alerts are sent from both the Remote Web and the Partner Portal.

The Remote Web alerts are mainly about the agents on the device such as backup and screenshot errors.  The Partner Portal alerts are mainly about any hardware or account issues.  For more information about the specific alerts, see the below resources.

Disclaimer: In the case of a decommissioned device, this process would still need to be done in order to stop email alerts

4. Listed under Reporting & Alerting, there are four areas of email alerts:  Screenshot Verification Alerts, Weekly Backup Report, Critical Error Alerts, Warning Notices, and Log Digests.  Under each is the email address area in which the alerts get sent to.
