Sending email messages

You can send email messages, which can optionally include file attachments, directly from ACL. This functionality is primarily used in scripts to notify users when processing has completed, or an error is found, but you can also send messages from ACL if you know the required information about your mail server configuration and the mail server security configuration does not prevent it.

To send an email message:

  1. Select Tools > Notify by Email.
  2. Complete the following information:
    • Sender – Enter the email address to send the message from.

    • Password – Enter the email account password.

    • Mailbox Path – Enter the hostname or IP address of your SMTP mail server. If you are using a local mail system, enter the path to a local mailbox or click Browse to open the Browse for Folder dialog box.

    • To – Enter the email addresses of recipients. Separate the names and addresses of multiple recipients with a comma.

    • Cc – Optional. Enter the email addresses of “carbon copy” recipients. Separate the names and addresses of multiple recipients with a comma.

    • Bcc – Optional. Enter the email addresses of “blind carbon copy” recipients. Separate the names and addresses of multiple recipients with a comma.

    • Subject – Enter the text of the subject line.

    • Text – Enter the text of the message.

    • Attachment – If you want to include an attachment, specify the path and filename of the file, or click Browse to open the Select File dialog box.

  3. Click OK.
