FRITZ!Box 7340 – Service

Configuring push services

You can use the push service to have e-mails containing the connection and usage data of the FRITZ!Box sent to you on a regular basis or when certain events occur. Then the FRITZ!Box notifies you, for example, when a new FRITZ!OS is available, when there are new messages on your answering machine, or if you missed a call. In addition, you can have a backup file with your settings sent to you automatically before every FRITZ!OS update.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • You must use an e-mail account with a POP3 e-mail server.
  • POP3 download must be enabled with your e-mail provider.

    Note:You can enable download in your e-mail account settings. Your e-mail provider can provide you with information on the procedure.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Entering e-mail 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. Click "Account Information - Additional Settings".
  5. Enter the user name for the e-mail account in the "E-mail user name" field.
  6. Enter the password for your e-mail account in the "Password" field.

    Important:The password for your e-mail account is not the same as the password required to access your personal customer account data.

  7. Enter the SMTP server in the "SMTP server" field. If the SMTP port is not accessible over port 25, then you must also enter the port used by the server to communicate (for example 587, see fig.). Your e-mail provider can tell you what to enter for the SMTP server.
  8. Enable the option "This server supports a secure connection (SSL)" if the server supports it.
