How to configure the Email settings?

Here are examples for the email configuration.

We recommend free Gmail which supports SMTP, use it just as the smtp server to send logs. Register one here: http://gmail.com

For Gmail:

>>>> Send to = your email address.
>>>> SMTP server = smtp.gmail.com
>>>> Port = 587
>>>> Username = your gmail email address
>>>> Password = your gmail password
>>>> USE SSL = yes

For Hotmail:

>>>> Send to = your email address.
>>>> SMTP server = smtp.live.com
>>>> Port = 587
>>>> Username = your hotmail email address
>>>> Password = your password
>>>> USE SSL = yes

For AOL Mail:

>>>> Send to = your email address.
>>>> SMTP server = smtp.aol.com
>>>> Port = 587
>>>> Username = your AOL email address
>>>> Password = your AOL email password
>>>> USE SSL = no

For Yahoo Email  

>>>> Send to = your email address.
>>>> SMTP server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
