Greetings.

I am trying to put together a way to send email from a MultiCharts indicator. Have found tools on the MultiCharts site that let an indicator spawn a command in the Windows shell... what's left is to find a way to send email (SSL or TLS) through a shell program, using a gmail account.

Anyone solved this problem before, for gmail in particular?

I tried blat (a command-line mail sender from sourceforge.net), but ran into problems configuring that program to send TLS.

Here a page describing SMTP configuration for gmail: Configuring other mail clients - Gmail Help

Thanks in advance.

I'm willing, of course, to share what I have to people who are also trying to solve this.

P.S.: Pending responses, I will investigate writing a dot-net command-line tool to send email through Outlook 2007.

Might check here:

Drealmer's Tumblr - Gmail SMTP via command line on Windows

and

Drealmer's Tumblr - Gmail, Blat and Stunnel

But it is somewhat convoluted. Since gmail requires TLS, you might simply be better off using Yahoo on this one... as much as I hate Yahoo... that way you can use a simpler smtp mailer from the command line, without the SSL/TLS.

Hello,

Sorry to post only for asking for help.

I have never successfully configured MC to send alerts by email.
Could someone tell me what is wrong in this setting please ?

Many thanks in advance.

Using MC, I send email alerts through my own domain email address and receive them on my smartphone Gmail account with no problems... You could probably use any email account to send them from MC..
It's nice that MC allows for multiple recipients too, just separate them with a semicolon (... I send them to both my laptop and smartphone at the same time....

try getting your hands on somekind of automated script. Heck you can probably just set a cronjob to pull that off for you if your using a unix based machine.

I recently ran into the same problem with gmail.
Google blocks any attempts to sign into your account from any software that is not gmail. To prevent such blocks, you have to go through the 2 step authentication process on google. Once thats done, you should be ok to send email alerts from multicharts.
