FileMaker 17 server Notifications

In FileMaker 17 server, I noticed that even though I have both local notification and Send Email Notifications on, I am not getting any notification sent by email. In FileMaker 16 server, I used to get notifications whenever

 

1- Authentication failed on a database

2- If there was something going on with server.

 

Right now, the only notifications I am receiving are the schedules notification.

 

Is there something else I need to do to enable these notifications again?  The below picture shows my SMTP notification settings which is already setup and working.  I have emptied the from, to and other information for security purposes. As you can see the message from the server:


"The SMTP test was succesfully. Verify that an email was sent to the proper email address"

 

I verified that I get the email:

 

This is a test email. If you received this email, then you have configured the email notification service successfully with the following settings.

 

FileMaker Server: XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

SMTP host: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

SSL: XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

TLS: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

Again, XXXXXXXXX for security purposes
