Email Message Warning after upgrade

We recently upgraded to v11.1.5 and updated our license. The email notification says we have 5 days to upgrade the license or we need to configure our own SMTP server. We have done both and still get the following message. Any ideas what is wrong and what needs to be done to correct the issue?

This SQLBackupAndFTP test e-mail confirms that your SMTP settings are set correctly. You have 5 day(s) left to use the complimentary Automatic (zero-config) email service. To continue using this service, please purchase any paid version of SQLBackupAndFTP at To continue receiving emails with a SQLBackupAndFTP Free version, go to “E-mail Settings” and configure your own SMTP server.
