Have a look to see if you also have the dudes.exe and dudew.exe processes running, I think the dudes.exe process might be the one causing you problems... I will be installing the rc1 release in the next day or two so will see if this happens for me also.

*Update*

Since I posted this issue I have rolled back to 0.91 and it has not hung once for me. All I did was an uninstall, reinstall and imported my backup xml file. I will upgrade to the newest version now and see if this problem persists.

After trawling the net for info, it seems that the problem is some firewalls only allowing 7 specific smtp commands through rather than all. So it looks like Dude uses EHLO rather than HELO to initiate the connection to the smtp server.

Email Notification Configuration Problem

I have been trying to configure Dude to email me when a device/service fails to respond. But I have found that the Exchange server returns a xxxx 500 error in the smtp logfiles.

Has anyone come across this problem? if so any help in solving it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.
