DMASOFTLAB RM 4.x Email Notifications for various events

Filed under: Linux Related, Mikrotik Related, Radius Manager — Tags: — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 2:30 PM

DMASOFTLAB Radius Manager 4.0.4  have interesting feature of email notifications for various events like account expiry warning, account renewal notification, send custom email to all users, password recovery via email verification code and many more. By default RM uses authentication less smtp server of your ISP, but in most cases Email sent from the RM box arrives in JUNK/SPAM folder in users email box, and sometimes bounces back due to black listed IP’s . This happens very frequent in my country as we widely use national telecom company internet service called PTCL, whose ip’s usually get blocked by many email services. Therefore I created this method by installing SENDMAIL in RM box, and uses my GMAIL account as SENDMAIL SMTP RELAY. This way RM sends mail via localhost, which uses valid GMAIL account to send email and email arrives in users INBOX directly 🙂

First we need to configure sendmail with gmail smtp relay. Use the below link to install.

After you have verified your smtp server is working fine by sending test email to your Hotmail/gmail/yahoo mail account.

You need to edit the following files.




Radius Manager 4.0.4 Email Configuration SAMPLES:



smtp_relay              localhost                       ; smtp relay
mail_from                    ; email sender address
mail_reply                   ; email reply adddress
mail_localdomain                       ; email local domain


define("smtp_relay", "localhost");                            // SMTP relay
define("mail_from", "");                   // warning email sender
define("mail_reply", "");                  // warning email return path
define("mail_preview", "");                // preview user of mass mail
define("mail_newuser", "");                // self registered new user notification
define("mail_localdomain", "");                      // default domain name


Now Open RM ACP (Administrator Control Panel) ,
& check the following settings.
As showed in the image below . . .

5- email setting.

Now Administrator & user will receive various Email Notifications.
As showed in the images below . . .


Account Expiry before 5 Days (days are configurable via admin panel / home ,settings)

1- Account Expire Warning



Welcome Message for newly registered users

2- Welcome New User.


Recover Password by Email

3- Recover password by email



Account Renewed Notification

4- Account Renewed


Note: Please check JUNK email folder, because sometimes email gets in JUNK folder if your ISP ips are listed in any dns black list as spam. Mark it safe so future mails comes into INBOX directly.

To edit various Texts appeared in the notifications, you can edit following files.






Radius Manager 4.1.x Email Configuration SAMPLES:


mail_localdomain            ; email    local domain



// SMTP definitions

define('smtp_relay', 'localhost');                // SMTP relay
define('smtp_port', 25);                    // SMTP port
define('smtp_auth', FALSE);                    // SMTP authentication
define('smtp_user', '');                // SMTP user name
define('smtp_psw', 'YOUR_GMAIL_PASSWORD');                // SMTP password
define('mail_from', '');            // sender address
define('mail_fromname', 'SYED JAHANZAIB Support');            // sender name
define('mail_newuser', '');            // self registered new user notification
define('mail_localdomain', '');        // default domain name

  2. where can find the config file for sms alerts


    Comment by tamilmaran — November 21, 2012 @ 9:17 AM

    • as per manual.
      SMS gateway
      The SMS gateway is configured in file api.php. It implements the HTTP to SMS gateway function
      s. The api.php fiie is not encoded with ionCube, so You can add your own SMS gateway using PHP
      programming language.
      You can call your own SMS gateway (HTTP gateway with CURL or a shell script to use your
      own mobile phone) to send the notifications or verification code for the user.

  10. Can this configuration works with RM version 4.1.X ?


    Comment by Yus — December 19, 2013 @ 4:28 PM

    • in RM 4.0.x , you have to use authenticationless smtp gateway , thats why I integrated GMAIL via sendmail on the same RM box.

      4.1.x now supports other SMTP servers too. Its much easier in 4.1.x


      Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — December 20, 2013 @ 10:55 AM

    Comment by patel deepak — June 23, 2016 @ 9:37 PM

  15. My bulk email section is working and while i create an user it is sending welcome message but when I update a user manually (suppose for 10 days), email is not sent. Is there any problem with my server? My server is Ubuntu 12.05 LTS and radius version 4.1.5.
    I hope you can suggest me if radius is not capable of doing this.
