Hi.
Im just starting out with NT and played with the strategy feature. When using the sendmail function I get a message of choise sent to me when a strategy "fires". Is there a way of getting a qoute instead? For example a NT enters a long strategy and sends a mail with the entryprice?
Thanx

Sure,

SendMail("from_here@yahoo.com", "to_here@txt.att.net", "ES went long", "Entry @ " + Close[0] + ".");

Man, what a fast answer. THANX alot

Ill give it a try! I have a strategy that seems to kick as but since I only have a zenfire demo I can only backtest it on ESU9 so thats from 11 june althogh Ive been following it manuelly for a while now. But Im "shopping" around for a brooker now so I can start using NT in the future. If I get a bit more data and it works out ill post it here...

Great blog and forumsite btw

BTW, I dont know if anyone else had a problem with sendmail and smpt.

I have been looking around for a Free Pop3 email and found that Yahoo Mail provides POP3 access for Yahoo Mail Plus! user that work with Ninjatrader. The Mail Plus costs however. BUT Yahoo Mail Singapore and Hong Kong is providing Free Yahoo POP3 email account. I’ve registered a Free Yahoo POP3 Email account at Yahoo Mail Singapore.

- Go to YahooMail SG and click on Sign Up. Just go thru the registration process, and get your Free Yahoo Email account

- To get the Free Yahoo POP3 Email access, you need to signup their Yahoo Delivers services at https://subscribe.yahoo.com/deliver?....m=REGISTRATION

- Once you have subscribed to Yahoo Deliver service, Login into your Yahoo Email and Go to “Option” -> “POP Access & Forwarding“, Select “Web & POP Access” and save.

To set it up in NT:

Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg
Port: 587 (dont use the recommended on 465 since it reqires SSL)
User : your mail ex johndoe@yahoo.com.sg
Password: your mail login password

Done
