Delivery Log Reports To Your Email Or FTP

 

For users who want to remotely keep tabs on the machine running the spy product, report delivery feature is exactly what you are looking for. It has the unique ability to send you all of the recorded log files to a specified email. This gives you the power to remotely checkup on what users of the machine are doing without having to physically be at the machine to do so!

As with the SMTP information, this data can be gathered by asking your ISP for it, visiting your ISP's online document, or by requesting it from your system administrator.

Note: email Settings has nothing to do with email monitoring function of the software. Email monitoring works automatically without configuration.

 

What is SMTP?

Short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, a protocol for sending emails between servers. Most email systems use SMTP to send messages from one server to another; the messages can then be retrieved with an email client software or a web browser.

 

Configure SMTP settings:

To configure your SMTP settings, click on "Configuration" button, then click on "Delivery" tab screen:

Send To - This is the email address that will be RECEIVING your logs. Make sure it is exact and correct, otherwise you will not receive the logs!

Subject - This is the subject of the email that will contain the logs. It can be changed for total concealment and to make it less discrete in case someone happens to see it.

Send From - This is the email address that delivers your logs from. It is usually a different address from the "Send To" address.

SMTP Host - This is the mail server of "Send From" email. An example SMTP server are as follows: mail.server.com, smtp.server.com*

SMTP Port - The port number of "SMTP Host". Common SMTP server ports include 25, 465 and 587.

Username - The login name of "Send From" email. Note: many SMTP servers use full email address as username, An example SMTP server is as follows: username@server.com*.

Password - The login password of "Send From" email.

Send Every X Minutes - This is simply how often you wish to have the logs delivered. It should usually be every 30-60 minutes, or sooner/later depending on the urgency of having the logs delivered.

* mail.server.com, smtp.server.com and username@server.com are only usual formats of SMTP server or email. You can't use them directly to setup your email settings. You must use your own custom email (server).
