Ozeki Phone System XE provides a System Notification feature, which can be useful if you are providing a 24/7 service and you need instant notification in case the state of an outside line or extension changes or when someone not authorized is attempting to login to the PBX. The article below describes how you can use this notification feature and what configurations are needed to set it up in Ozeki Phone System XE.
If you want your service to be running with the lowest number of errors and pauses then using the system notification feature of Ozeki Phone System XE is the key to this.
To setup the notification feature in PBX you have to create an email provider connection and a dial plan for messaging. To do so login to Ozeki Phone System XE (Figure 1). Type in your username and password then press login.

On the left side of the screen you will see a blue bordered box called Outside lines. Click ’Add’ (Figure 2). You need to install an Email provider. If a notification needs to be sent out in email, the PBX can forward it to the email provider to send it out to the set email address.

On the right half of the screen you will see an ’Email provider’ label. Click the ’Install’ button next to it (Figure 3).

On the configuration panel of the new Email Provider, enter the name of this connection. After that you need to specify the SMTP server name, the Port number and an email address as a default sender address. In case of using traditional email services, like G-Mail, Yahoo, etc., you need to fill out the other edit boxes as well. For this information please ask your Email Service Provider. Having done these steps, click on the 'OK' button (Figure 4).

In the Activity menu panel, you will see that the SMTP connection is estabilished. Next you need to add a dial plan rule to the email provider. You will see a warning message after creating the email provider. Click on ’Create dial plan rule’ (Figure 5).

A dial plan needs to be created to determine which emails will be
forwarded to the email provider. After they are forwarded they will be
sent out. The Rule scope has to be set to ’Messages’ and the destination
has to be set to the email provider you have just created.
Then set the source to 'Any source'. This can be an extension or an outside line. You can even specify a range of extensions. If you’re ready setting up the dial plan click ’Save’ (Figure 6).
