SSRS E-Mail Settings and Office 365 E-Mail Account


  • Hi,

    I would like to configure my Reporting Services so that a group of end-users can subscribe to a series of reports, but my email account resides on O365 and I don't know what values to use for the email settings.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Saeed,

    you can follow this

    the settings you must set is SMTPAuthenticate with the user account from Office 365 (ie the account must have an Exchange mailbox on Office 365)

  • Configure below setting for sending email through SSRS

    In SQL server configuration manger>E Mail Setting>

    Sender address - or

    Current SMTP Delivery method - USE SMTP Server

    SMTP Server - put here smtp server name or ip address of the same.

    now go to report on http://servername/reports/xxxx

    and go to option subscribe click on that a new page will open on where every this self explanatory.

    Hope this will help you....

  • Thanks Avanish, but my question is what should use as my SMTP server, since the mailbox is on O365:)

    I can't use anymore! True?

  • Hi Fanny:(

    My SMTP Relay worked fine for 2 days, and then emails started piling up in my "mailroot\badmail" directory:(

    I'm not sure I'm missing anything in my SSRS Config File! Please take a peak at my config to see I'm missing anything:

                <Extension Name="Report Server Email" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.EmailDeliveryProvider.EmailProvider,ReportingServicesEmailDeliveryProvider">

    Thanks in advance;
