The following config will send an email for when a user logs in

logg enable

logging list login-list 605005

logging mail 6 login-list

logging from-address [email protected]

logging recipient-address [email protected]


Here is the guide that explains the commands and here is the syslog %PIX|ASA-6-605005: Login permitted from source-address/source-port to

interface:destination/service for user "username"

I hope it helps.

Hi Pk

Thanks for your valuable information. I am going to configure email alert on my system. Can you tell me both (logging from-address [email protected], logging recipient-address [email protected]) mail address should be the same domain or can I use only one mail address for from and recipient from like   [email protected] and recipient [email protected]

Or from [email protected] and recipient [email protected]

Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

The domain doesn't matter.

As long as the smtp server accepts the from and to it will work.

I hope it is clear.
