Sending notifications to secondary email address of users
ADSelfService Plus notifies end users via email about an impending password or account expiration, successful password self-service actions, and more. By default, this notification is sent to the user's primary email address that is tied to Active Directory. To reduce the chance of users missing these notifications if they are not able to access their accounts (because of locked out accounts or forgotten passwords), ADSelfService Plus allows you to send these notifications to users' alternate email addresses as well.
This article will show you how it’s done.

Log into ADSelfService Plus as an administrator.
- Navigate to Admin → Product Settings → Mail/SMS Settings.
- Select the Mail Settings tab.
- Under Notification Settings click Enable Notification to All Secondary Mails of Users

To enable end users to be benefited by secondary email notifications, administrators can force them to specify an alternate email address at the time of user enrollment by following these steps:
- Navigate to Configuration → Multi-factor Authentication.
- Select the appropriate policy from the drop-down list.
- Click the Advanced button.
- Under Secondary Email/Mobile Number, select the Allow or Block email addresses from the following domains _ option. Use this option to block or allow particular email domains. You can leave this field empty to allow any domain after choosing Allow.
- From the Choose Enforcement drop-down menu, select Force users to register email address.
- Click OK.
Your end users will now be able to receive all notifications in the secondary email address that is specified by them.
