FRITZ!Box 7340 Service

Configuring the push service

You can have the push service send you emails with the connection and usage data of the FRITZ!Box at regular intervals or when certain events occur. Then the FRITZ!Box notifies you when a new FRITZ!OS is available, when you have new messages on your answering machine, or if you missed a call, for example. You can also have a backup file with your settings sent to you automatically before every FRITZ!OS update.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Entering email account information

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Push Service" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Sender" tab.
  4. Enter your email address and password.
  5. Click "Account Information - Additional Settings".

    Note:In most cases, the FRITZ!Box fills in the following information automatically. With smaller local providers, you have to enter it yourself. Refer to your email provider for the required information.

  6. Enter your user name and the name of your email provider's SMTP server.
  7. If the server cannot be reached over port 25, enter the port used by the server to communicate, for example 587 (see fig.).
  8. If the server supports SSL, enable the option "This server supports a secure connection (SSL)".
