Configuring SpotCollector to Send Email or SMS messages Announcing the Creation of New Spot Database Entries for Needed DX Stations

On the Configuration window's eMail tab,

  1. Configure the Outgoing Mail Server panel with the parameters necessary to send an outgoing email message via your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This information is typically provided on your ISP's web site. Here are the settings for popular ISPs:

    • Gmail
      • Outgoing Mail Server Address

        smtp.gmail.com

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Server requires authentication

        enable

        Outgoing Mail Server Address User name

        your Gmail username

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Password

        your Gmail password

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Port number

        465

        Outgoing Mail Server Address SSL encryption required

        enable

        Note: if you receive a message from gmail entitled "Sign-in attempt prevented" that says "Someone just tried to sign in to your Google Account foo@gmail.com from an app that doesn't meet modern security standards", you can disable Google's screening as described here.

    • Comcast
      • Outgoing Mail Server Address

        smtp.comcast.net

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Server requires authentication

        enable

        Outgoing Mail Server Address User name

        your Comcast username

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Password

        your Comcast password

        Outgoing Mail Server Address Port number

        465

        Outgoing Mail Server Address SSL encryption required

        enable
