  3. Type: email-notification recipient <EMAIL>
  4. Type: use event-system-policy <policy-name>


wm3600-4215B8(config-device-MAC)#email-notification host x.x.x.x sender {port <1-65535> | security | username <WORD> password <WORD>}
wm3600-4215B8(config-device-MAC)#email-notification recipient
Additional notes
When configuring the email notification as unencrypted (default) the WM will send a localhost IP ( in its EHLO message to the email server.  Some servers will reject this due to security concerns.  If the email server is rejecting this communication it may be necessary to use TLS encryption (WiNG 5.5.5 and up):

wm3600-4215B8(config-device-MAC)#email-notification host x.x.x.x sender port 587 security starttls username <WORD> password <WORD>

For SMTP server that accept anonymous login, command used is as per below
wm3600-4215B8(config-device-MAC)# email-notification host x.x.x.x sender port 25

No username is required.
