Information in this document applies to any platform.
After a SMTP server outage, email notifications are not sent.
Instead they are visible in the EM notification management page with the status RETRY.
According to documentation, if there is any notification failure, the notification retries three times. If the retries all fail, it marks this notification as being in error.

You may see the following error in the log:
