Mail Server is used to configure email server settings to enable OpenVPMS to send emails.

The fields are as follows:

Name The server name
Description The server description
Active Uncheck this to prevent emails being sent
Host The server host name
Port The server port
Username The server user name
Password The server password
Security Set to None, SSL/TLS, or STARTTLS as required by your email provider. The standard setup is:   
Port Security
25 None

The timeout, in seconds for sending and receiving data from the mail server. A value of 0 indicates no timeout.
This can be used to prevent email sends from waiting indefinitely if there are mail server or network problems.
Note that this sets the upper limit for interaction with the mail server, not the length of time it takes to send an email.
If a timeout occurs, an email may still be be partially sent.
