Edit the Email.asp File

Access to and permissions within your Report Portal are controlled using individual user and group accounts.
Each time that you add a new account or edit an existing account, a confirmation email can be sent to the email address that you specify for that account (see Working with Accounts ) and copied to the email addresses that you specify in the email.asp file.
Notification emails are sent to account users only when you have specified an email address for the account and properly configured the email.asp file. If you do not want notification emails sent for an account, leave the account’s email field blank.
This file resides in the *PortalName*\PortalASP folder.
