In R2, If you are unable to receive any email notification after setting up File Server Resource Manager, it is dued to the fact that you are using Exchange with SMTP. There is a known bug that email will not be sent out if Exchange has Basic authentication turned on.

Workaround: Customers who do use basic authentication can turn it off and FSRM’s email notification?should work. If customers who do not use Exchange, will not have this issue too.
