The following options are available:

Send To: (e-mail notification)

Errors: The e-mail address you want CatTools to send error notifications. All the errors that occur during a scheduled activity are collected and sent as a single error alert. The error notification will tell you what error occurred and on which devices.

More than one e-mail address can be specified by using a comma (,) or a semi colon (;) to delimit the addresses.

For example:,,

A check box gives you the option to send error notifications only when in timer mode.

Reports/Stats: The e-mail address you want CatTools to send reports and statistics. Most scheduled activities produce a report or statistics table of some kind.

More than one e-mail address can be specified by using a comma (,) or a semi colon (;) to delimit the addresses.

For example:,,

A check box gives you the option to send reports only when in timer mode.

From Address:

Enter the "From Address" you want to appear in e-mail notifications from CatTools. This makes it easy for you to manage incoming e-mail notifications at your e-mail client, particularly SPAM filters. We suggest that you use a fully qualified real e-mail address. Some SMTP servers only send e-mail on behalf of addresses in their domain. For example, if your mail domain is, use a from e-mail address of "" rather than just "CatTools"

Logging Options:

A check box allows you to select whether to keep a log of email activity. The log normally contains informational and error level messages.

A check box allow you to set the logging message level to verbose. This is useful when there is a problem with email that requires you to see the complete email message traffic with your email server. It is not recommended that you set this option on except as needed due to the volume of data recorded.

Two buttons allow you to View the email log, and to Delete it.

Send Interval: You can set the email sending interval. This controls the seconds the mailer waits before sending a batch of email messages. A value of 20 means the mailer wakes up every 20 seconds to see if there is any messages to send.

Messages / Interval: This option sets the number of email messages the mailer sends to the mail server during one sending session. This allows you to control the amount of email traffic to your email server if you require it.

Send Retries: This option set the number of times the mailer will attempt to send an email that may have errors before it flags the message as not deliverable.

Test Email:

Click the button to test the current e-mail settings against both mail servers. Email messages to the Errors and Reports/Stats addresses previously entered are sent.
