In order to send emails, the host computer must have an internet connection and an outgoing email server account. To set up the link between ModCom and your email server, enter the information below. Once this is set up, it will be used for all of the "Send Email" functions in the current project. The following is a summery of the options available in the Email Setup dialog box:
Properties Dialog Box:
Server Access Information:
SMTP Server: Type in the SMTP address which is used for all outgoing emails. The address is usually a name such as smtp.domain.net but can also be an address in number format. If you do not know the name or address, your email service provider or system administrator should be able to provide it to you.
Server Port: Type in the port number for your SMTP outgoing mail server. In most cases the port number will be either 25 or 587 for unencrypted connections. ModCom does not support encrypted connections such as TLS or port 465 which is used for SSL connections. Contact your email service provider for the correct port number.
User Name: Type in the username given to you by your email service provider. If your service provider does not require a username and password, leave this blank.
Password: Type in the password given to you by your email service provider. If your service provider does not require a username and password, leave this blank.
Name: Type in the name of the sender which will be attached to the email message. This field is optional and can be left blank.
Email: Type in the email address of the sender. Note, most outgoing email servers will not allow an email to be sent without a return email address, so this field can not be left blank.
Reply-To: Type in the email address which will be used by the recipient when sending a reply to this email message. This field is optional and can be left blank. If blank, the reply email will be directed to the return email address entered above.
