Cause
Resolution

There are two SMTP settings on the Mail Settings tab of the Options dialog:

  • Local Setting specifies SMTP information for the computer running Director, from which Performance Analysis reports are e-mailed.
  • Director Setting specifies SMTP information for jobs, which are scheduled and executed on Director. Changes to Director Setting are automatically reflected in the scheduled jobs.

To resolve the issue, change the SMTP setting to Local Setting
