E-mail Help

Alerts can be sent when someone on your LAN (local area network) tries to visit a blocked site. Logs are lists of all the URLs that have been visited. If you want to have alerts and logs sent to you by e-mail, fill out the settings on this screen.

You can always check the logs manually by viewing the Logs screen. If you do not want to receive e-mails, leave the fields blank.

To receive alerts and logs by e-mail:

  1. Select the Turn E-mail Notification On check box.
  2. In the Outgoing Mail Server field, type the outgoing SMTP mail server of your ISP (for example, smtp.myISP.com).
    If you leave this field blank, no alerts or logs will be sent to you.
    If your outgoing mail server requires authentication, please check the checkbox of My Mail Server requires authentication and input correct username and password in related fields.
    Tip: You used this information when you set up your e-mail program. If you cannot remember it, check the settings in your e-mail program.
  3. In the E-mail Address field, type an e-mail address to have alerts and logs sent to you or someone else.
    Use a full e-mail address (for example, Jackie@myISP.com).
  4. If you want an e-mail alert sent whenever someone on your network tries to connect to a blocked URL, select the Send Alert Immediately check box.
  5. If you do not want logs sent, select None from the first list in the Send Logs According to This Schedule area.

    Or if you want logs sent, select one of the other options.
    • If you selected Weekly, then select which day of the week.
    • If you selected Weekly or Daily, select the time of day for the e-mail to be sent.
