    Hi Refael

    Any alerts configured in the system for Eg. If a user has accessed or tried to access an unauthorized  table in the database an Alert is triggered and  it should be sent as an email to the responsible person to look into it. Since every Exchange uses SMTP Authentication as secure and preferred method for sending emails through the mail systems. I want to know how we can achieve this in Imperva.

    HI Aleem,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    It seems that you wish to associate what we call a Followed Action, to some audit policy once it violated - pls correct me if I am wrong.
    In such case, please go over the following Doc which explain on Action Sets: https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v12.6-management-server-manager-user-guide/page/Working_with_Action_Sets_and_Followed_Actions.htm 
    Since the matching Followed Action in this case is Send an Email, please look what should be the parameters in the following Doc, under Send an E-mail section: https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v12.6-management-server-manager-user-guide/page/2404.htm

    Hope this was useful.

    Hi Refael 

    you are right but my issue is that we have created a dedicated email account in our exchange to be used by imperva as a source email address in order to send email to a destination email 
    where in Imperva application configuration do i furnish this email account and its credential  ,without authentication no emails can be sent from a source email address to destination email address.
