Calibration Control specifically makes use of these settings in the Auto Notify utility feature that sends out scheduled Email notifications or messages to the People identified in the Calibration Control from whichever machine the Auto Notify event was activated via Task Scheduler.

 Use the following fields in the Email tab to setup a connection to your company or personal email server: 

Program Options - Email
  • SMTP Server:  An SMTP server address usually looks something like SMTP.YOURDOMAIN.COM.
  • Email/Password:  This is the email address (or user name) and password of the email account Ape will be sending mail from.
  • Seconds Between Emails: Enter the number of seconds to wait between sending each email. By default, this value is zero.
  • Port:  By default, the port number is 0. Otherwise, enter the port number required by your email server.
  • Disable CSS in Emails:  The default Email templates use embedded cascading style sheets (CSS) to format text with colors, backgrounds, decorations, etc., especially in the table of Equipment  If the email services you send emails to blocks some CSS, like Gmail , check this box to get a list of some minimal coloring back into the Equipment grid.
  • Connection Settings:
    • Connect Asynchronously
    • Secure Socket Options
  • Use Legacy Email (pre 9.2): Check this box if you require the "Use Secure Connection" checkbox previously used in versions prior to 9.2. Alternatively, you can try using a Secure Socket Option of SSL on Connect.
  • Output Folder: Optionally, select a folder path for a copy of all emails sent out. The Enabled checkbox must be checked for emails to be copied to the selected path. Note:
  • Email File Mask The default file mask can be slightly edited to your liking. {RND32} will contain the unique identifier of each email.
  • Enabled: This checkbox enables the Email File Mask. If it is checked, test emails will not be sent out and an email file will be created instead, regardless if no output folder is selected.

Send Test Email to:  Solely for the purpose of testing your email settings, enter an email address to send a test message to.  Alternatively, you can choose to Send to Email Output Folder.
