I canīt receive emails.

I insert:
#region Variables
private DateTime lastEmailSent;

protected override void OnBarUpdate()

// Condition set 1
if (ToTime(Time[0]) >= 100000 && ToTime(Time[0]) <= 220000
&& WMA(Weighted, 20)[0] > WMA(Weighted, 50)[0]
&& Low[0] > WMA(Weighted, 20)[0]
&& WMA(Weighted, 20)[0] > WMA(Weighted, 20)[4]
&& Close[0] > Swing(5).SwingHigh[0])
if (DateTime.Now > lastEmailSent.AddMinutes(30))
SendMail("", "", "Buy LONG position", "Entry @ "+ Close[0] + ".");
lastEmailSent = DateTime.Now;
EnterLong(DefaultQuantity, "Long");

But I delete the code under "Properties":
#region Properties
public int MyInput0
get { return myInput0; }
set { myInput0 = Math.Max(1, value); }

Where is the error?
Thanks für your help.

You might try adding a set of parentheses for your first condition:

if ((EMA(25)[0] > EMA(72)[0])
                && (DateTime.Now > lastEmailSent.AddMinutes(30))
Just a guess. Not sure if its valid for C#.

Take out everything except the part that sends the email, do you get it then? If not, your ISP likely blocks port 25 and you'll need to reconfigure NinjaTrader options.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
