Was there a tick box to enable authentication in the SMTP settings? It should be set to plain authentication.

I guess it will probably be plain, have you ticked it?

Have you configured the rest of the SMTP settings as described here

Can you send ok using that email address with a client such as Thunderbird on your PC, to verify if the problem is with email or the DVR.

I'm assuming you are a BTbroadband customer or paying for Premium mail, if neither, SMTP access won't work.

Then the problem would appear to lie with the DVR. Have you tried using a Gmail address on the DVR?

Re: hikvision dvr not sending notifications

They would. Did they elaborate as to what they thought the problem might be? Is there anywhere to configure DNS on the DVR? Is it set to auto to obtain DNS settings from the hub, can you set DNS manually? Set to 8.8.8.8 and 4.4.4.4 if manual setting possible.
