I've 2 separate environment setup. Dev and Production environments. I'm using 'Email' component in Alteryx to send email without configuring the SMTP server. It successfully send email in Dev but not Production environment. I'm don't know where does SMTP service is being setup in Dev environment. In Production, it complaints about not finding any SMTP service.
Where does in Alteryx should I configure so that the 'Email' component will work with autodiscover the SMTP service? Is it configurable in Alteryx or Windows?
It's not that Alteryx "auto discovers" SMTP settings. In auto mode, Alteryx talks directly to the destination mail server to send the mail. In effect, it is acting as its own mail server.
If auto doesn't work, it is usually firewall rules. Often network IT will block SMTP from any machine other than the company's SMTP server. This is a common tactic to block potential spam sending virus infections.
So in short, if auto doesn't work, you need to talk to your IT department.
