Email Set-up

You need to set-up certain Email Parameters in Global Preferences so that SPC Express knows how to communicate with your SMTP email server.  

A. Go to File / Global Preferences and click on the 5th tab, "AutoScope & Email".

SMTP Server: smtp.comcast.net (or similar)
Username, Password: johnsmith,applepie (or similar)
Email FROM: johnsmith@comcast.net (or similar)
Email TO: BobTheQCManager@gmail.com (or similar)
Email CC: <sue@gmail.com>;<sally@hotmail.com> (or similar)


B. You may need to also set some "Extra Options" on the 4th tab, depending on your mail server.

Type-in one of the following (default = CRAM-MD5)
SMTP=EXCHANGE
SMTP=LOGIN **
SMTP=PLAIN **

SMTPPORT=587 ** (if your server uses port 587 instead of 110)

If you want to turn on Logging (for trouble-shooting):
SMTP=LOGFILE     (A log file name EmailLogFile.txt will get generated in your working folder.)

SIMPLE (but limited) Email Set-up:

If you don't have - or don't know - your SMTP email settings, you can use the Google public email service.   This is very simple to set-up but limits you to sending your email notifications to gmail accounts only.

Set ...
Email Outgoing SMTP Server:   aspmx.L.google.com
Username, Password: Leave blank (none required)
Email TO: This MUST be a gmail account where the email will be sent. For example: PeterPan1902@gmail.com
