Email alerts failing to send from Dell iDRAC v9

If you have a Dell server with a version 9 iDRAC, release 4.x, you'll no doubt no longer be receiving email from it. The reason for this is:

After iDRAC is upgraded to version, you may stop receiving encrypted email alerts from iDRAC, if the external email server does not support encryption. iDRAC firmware version introduces a user-selectable encryption option and the default protocol is StartTLS.

To start receiving email messages again, disable the email encryption by using the following RACADM command:

 racadm set idrac.RemoteHosts.ConnectionEncryption None
