Configure email alerts
This page describes StackState version 4.1.
The StackState 4.1 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.1 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.
To receive email alerts for changes in health state, the StackState configuration must include SMTP server details.
