Motion detection email notification in Beta 2007-03-03

Post by pauln » Thu Mar 15, 2007 2:52 am

Magnus, first, congratulations on the incredible Yawcam software! Thank you! You really should sell something this good.

Okay, my problem is that I can't seem to get the email notification feature to work for the motion detection. I have used two different SMTP servers (both working), but it never sends out an email. Is there something I am missing? I also turned on the File feature to make sure the motion detection is working and it works fine.

Is the email feature supposed to work in the Beta 2007-03-03 or is it still "under construction"?

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, the email feature is supposed to work...
If you look in the console in Yawcam. Can you see any error messages there?

I have been using the smtp server of gmail for example.
SMTP Server:
Port: 465
Enable Use encrypted connection (SSL)
Enable Password required.
Username: Your gmail e-mail address.
Password: Your gmail password.
