Select the appropriate character set for your language.

NoteNote:
To access a list of all available code pages, go to the Character set section on the Outgoing E-mail Settings page of the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.

url

A valid URL name, such as http://server_name

No

A valid URL to a Web application.

The outgoing e-mail feature uses an outbound Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service to relay e-mail alerts and notifications.

Outgoing e-mail support can be enabled at both the server farm level (available from the Operations section of Central Administration) and at the Web application level (available from the Application Management section of Central Administration). Therefore, when the url parameter is used, you can specify different settings for a specific Web application.

Outgoing e-mail settings at the Web application level override those set up at the server farm level.

To configure e-mail settings for a specific Web application, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o email -outsmtpserver mail.example.com -fromaddress someone@example.com -replytoaddress someone@example.com -codepage 65001 -url http://server_name

To configure e-mail settings for the entire farm, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o email -outsmtpserver mail.example.com -fromaddress someone@example.com -replytoaddress someone@example.com -codepage 65001
