How to Configure SendEmail Functionality

Postby Apprentice » Tue Sep 21, 2010 2:54 am

Send Signal to email functionality to work, you need to configure the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) options.

Most Internet and email providers provide the ability to send email via SMTP (outgoing) mail server, in order to provide support for different e-mail management applications like Outlook.

Hi everybody,

I still have problem with the email. I try many of them, and non one works. It's always the same message (Failed to connect to the SMTP server...)

I have found this SMTP web site http://www.e-eeasy.com/SMTPServerList.aspx

I have Windows 7
My firewall is AVG
FX trading station 2 with MF Global

I hope i'm not the only one who this problem...

Best

Just to note: Some ISP, for example optimum in the U.S. does not allow to use any smtp servers but their own only. So, please also check for your internet service provider instructions. For optimum online users the smtp server must always be mail.optonline.net

hi Dervakon,
I had the same problem with the SMTP server thing on the FXCM strategies.
Which email provider did you use?

Hi Christine123,

Sorry for the delay, I'm using videotron.com (canada) it's the only one who work with my platform. I try many of them and no one seems to works.

I think you have to try many of them to find one who will work perfectly for you

Hi
My suggestion was to use www.gmail.com such as smtp.gmail.com due to fact of 2 reason
1)It a free account whereby any user around the world can use with little restriction ,work best only with FXCM Trading stations, MT4 canot use as it use SLL outgoing mail .
2)Support Push emails technology instead of pop response time which is similiar like blake berry services whereby your Windows MObile or Iphone support Exchange emails whereby you can get instantly email alert instead of checking email every x min base on Pop server technology.
