i’m i little bit confused about this behavior.
In the Lifecycle Manager i have entered my email address to get notifications when new patches are available and in the vCenter configration i have entered my internal smtp server.
But now i noticed on my external messaging gateway that the vcenter connects that gateway to send me that notification mail.
From where is he getting that ip/name from?
Do the Lifecycle Manager ask the mx record to deliver emails? Why isn’t he using the configured mail host?
