In order to receive alerts from my NAS I decided to use Free Axigen Office Edition (Standard)
By setting up email on my NAS I only need a pop-email notifier on my DAW to see if there are alerts. I use poppeeper for this
Axigen provides the whole package including POP3 in a modern interface and easy installation. Officially Axigen is not supported on OpenSolaris but it turned out fine.
Downloaded latest version for Solaris
First removed sendmail because I will use the sendmail functionality from Axigen:
OpenSolaris: pkg uninstall SUNWsndm
Execute as root ./axigen-7.1.4.i386.solaris.run
Then the wizard needs to be launched by issuing one of the following commands, on Solaris and all Linux platforms:
This Wizard is using xterm and that was causing some problems:
I tried with VNC;
started vncserver as root and used vncviewer on windows 10.0.0.4:5901
although xclock was working as root i could not start axigen-cfg-wizard.
In google I found: install the following package: ncurses
After that was done I could start the wizard.
If you don't want to use VNC; Axigen provides the following solution for this problem:

Error opening terminal. This can easily be solved by setting the TERMINFO environment variable to the correct terminfo
Logon to your Solaris box
Open a terminal window as admin (standard user created during install of openSolaris) and open xterm session as root with:
In this window at the prompt type:
now you can start the wizard
I configured everything according standard.
(you can easily change it later using the GUI)
