Not sure if your platform is Linux or if it Windows.

I have NPS 10.10 deployed on SuSE Linux 11 SP4.

There's a command located here: /opt/OV/NNMPerformanceSPI/bin

configureBIEmailServer.ovpl

On my system, there is a man-page for it too:

NAME
       configureBIEmailServer.ovpl - utility to configure BI Server to enable
       email delivery

SYNOPSIS
       Usage: configureBIEmailServer.ovpl [-h] -s <smtpserver:port> -r
       <default-sender-email-address> [-u <username>] [-p <password>]
              -h       Usage
              -s           smtpserver:port  Example: mailserver.domain.com:25
              -u      username (optional: needed on if smtp server required
       authentication)
              -p      password (optional: needed on if smtp server required
       authentication)
              -r      default-sender-email-address  Example:
       biadmin@domain.com
DESCRIPTION
       "configureBIEmailServer.ovpl" may be used to configure email server
       details into the BI Server, so that reports may be emailed from the

       iSPI Performance console.

       The servername:port and default-sender-email-address parameters are
       required.  The username and password credentials are optional - provide
       these only if your smtp server requires authentication.

       When this script is run, it will modify the BI Server configuration
       with the details provided.

       This task may be also be done manually by running the BI Server
       Configuration GUI (from Windows Start Menu, or use
       "runBIConfigGUI.ovpl"), select 'Notification' and edit the associated
       entries.

       NOTE: any existing email server information is overwritten when this
       script is run.
