set mailsender=mailsend.exe
set smtpsender=username@gmail.com
set smtpsenderfullname=username
set smtpserver=smtp.gmail.com
set smtpport=465
set smtpuser=username@gmail.com
set smtppwd=password
set mailto=username@gmail.com

Hello quadra74!

1. You should download mailsend1.18.exe.zip
2. Extract mailsend1.18.exe
3. Rename mailsend1.18.exe to mailsend.exe

Thank you!

Hello quadra74!

You should add another type of notification Execute on server:
3. Create new Notification
Name: Email-mailsend
Type: execute on server
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Dude\mailsend\mailsend.cmd" "Service [Probe.Name] on [Device.Name] is now [Service.Status]" "Service [Probe.Name] on [Device.Name] is now [Service.Status] ([Service.ProblemDescription])"
And test it via pressing Test button.
Thank you!

luckysatriadzudin, it seems that the issue is related to the connection to the host smtp.gmail.com.
Please to run the following commands on server where Dude is installed and post results here:
1.
nslookup smtp.gmail.com
2.
ping smtp.gmail.com
3.
telnet smtp.gmail.com 465
Thank you!

Re: Dude - Email notification through Gmail on Windows - via mailsend.

Fri May 20, 2016 7:58 pm

luckysatriadzudin, thank you for the results!

1. nslookup is ok.
2. ping is ok.
3. telnet is not ok. Please use entire command with port 465 on the end:
telnet smtp.gmail.com 465
.

And anyway from your last screen I can see that connection was successfully and the issue with authorization at the moment.

Please try again and copy link Gmail provide you and log in via Web Browser using this link. It maybe related to the Less secure apps.

Re: Dude - Email notification through Gmail on Windows - via mailsend.

Fri Jul 22, 2016 10:34 pm

I have created the notification, mailsend folder and script. I cannot get it to send to a gmail account. I did change it from execute on server to execute locally and the exe file opened and closed when I tested it bust still no email. I am able to nslook up gmails smtp as well as ping it and telnet into it so I am not sure what is going on here. Should the mailsend folder be created on the dude server if it is set to execute on the server? Sorry for the lack of knowledge I know nothing about the dude

Kincaidc,

Please uncomment pause command in mailsend.cmd file. And after this pres Test button in you notification.
If your notification is Execute localy - a black window should appear where you can see sending status.

Copy and paste text you see for future analysis: right click --> mark --> select the text --> Enter(=Ctrl+C) --> Ctrl+V.
Please be aware to not disclose user and password.

Kincaidc,

Please, remove image(all text) from your recent post and change your password on gmail account.

Then you can repeat log capturing, but please be aware with your credentials gain. You posted them in last line of your screen.
1. Scroll down appeared windows - message from mail server is on last line.
2. Instead of creating screenshot you can just copy text from this windows: Right click on black area --> Mark --> Select the text with mouse --> Press Enter(=Ctrl+C) --> Press Ctrl+V on the forum.

We need just last lines where gmail server reply.

Thank you!

I see that. It is a bogus email address anyway. It no longer exists, I deleted the account. the email notifications are not going to work for me. I thank you for your time but the script just does not work for me.

Kincaidc,

I just verified if it working:
1. Start --> Run --> cmd --> Enter
2. "c:\Program Files (x86)\Dude\mailsend\mailsend.cmd" "Test Subject" "Test Body"

And all works.

Also added Troubleshooting section in instruction.

Good luck!

Thanks for the help Slech it works like a charm. I did have a question. If we are using this mailsend.cmd to execute and email notification to gmail my gut tells me I can change the script to reflect the correct smtp server as well as port number of our local exchange server and have the dude send notifications direclty to me rather than gmail and then setting up rules to forward them to the exchange account. I have not tried it but why wouldn't that work

Hello, Kincaidc!

Glad to hear that all is working!

It should work with Microsoft Exchange. You can conside '-ssl' option in mailsend.cmd. If your exchange does not support this you should remove it from file.
For more information you can see https://github.com/muquit/mailsend/blob ... .mediawiki

Also found in Google the following article: Send Email from a .bat script.

I thought I should update this thread as I have found a solution for email notifications DIRECTLY through The Dude without any other junk....

If you have a Gmail account then enter this SMTP server in the dude for primary SMTP.... aspmx.l.google.com (you will have to resolve it to an ip address to input into dude). Then use your gmail address for the send to address and that is it!!! Have had email notifications up and running with this for over a week!!! This particular SMTP server DOES NOT require authentication as long as it is going to a Gmail account, that is why it will work in the Dude.

Re: Dude - Email notification through Gmail on Windows - via mailsend.

Wed Mar 08, 2017 10:05 am

j12345h,

I think we can do this in two ways:
a) Using Windows explorer:
1. Go to the mailsend folder, in our example it is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dude\mailsend"
2. Right click --> New --> Text Document. Now you should see "New Text Document.txt". If you see only "New Text Document" without ".txt" at the end you should change your windows explorer settings in order to display files extensions. For more information please see article from Microsoft: How to show or hide file name extensions in Windows Explorer.
3. Right click on the "New Text Document.txt" --> Rename --> mailsend.cmd --> Enter

b) Using command-line interface:
1. Start --> Run --> cmd --> Enter
2. Type:
echo > "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dude\mailsend\mailsend.cmd"
and press Enter
For this, folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Dude\mailsend should exists before command execution.

Now you have a mailsend.cmd file. To modify it: Right click on mailsend.cmd --> Edit

Thank you!

How did you test it? You should try to test it by pressing Test button in The Dude.

On your screen we probably see that you just double clicked on the created file and it asked you to provide message body.

Please follow guide step-by-step and provide information on which one you have an issue.
