    WatchFTP will try to connect to your SMTP Server.

Host: The Host-name of your SMTP Server, e.g.

Port: Listens to this port. Normally this will be "25", but some servers use another port.

UserID / Password: Connect to your SMPT Server using this UserID and Password.

From Email Address: Use this email address as the "Sender" of all emails.

Use TLS / Use STARTTLS: Some SMTP Servers require an encrypted Connection.

Admin Alerts: When WatchFTP encounters a problem it can send an alert to the email you enter here. Leave empty for no email.

TIP: Gmail over SSL

You can use GMail's SMTP Server to send email. All Email sent through Gmail will also end up in your "Sent Items" Folder.
