SC email alarm


Stephen Rabinowitz
 

The Spot collector email alarm is very helpful. When SC is restarted, for example after an update of databases, the alarm is no longer enabled, the enable box is no longer checked. Does anyone else experience this behavior? What can be done to keep the box checked?

+ If you're referring to the Enable box in the upper-left corner of the Configuration window's "Email alarm" tab, that setting is saved at shutdown and restored at startup like every other SpotCollector setting. SpotCollector only disables this option if an attempt to send a message fails, and the following retry also fails; when that happens, the words "Email notification disabled" appear in the Main window's title bar.
