SMTP Server

Field Track will need the SMTP (Outgoing Email) server address of your ISP to use the email functions provided within Field Track. You can find your ISP's SMTP server from your email software's account settings for your email details. Copy it here. Field Track only uses email functions at your request. Currently this is only for the "Send Feedback Email" under the "Help" menu, as well as "Registration" options. At no other time will Field Track send any emails. Field Track uses the Internet extensively for upgrade and support, so will require access through your firewall system.

Getting Your SMTP Server Address (Outlook Express)

Select the "Tools" menu in Outlook Express:
Select the "Accounts" option.
Select the "Mail" tab and then click on your 'default' email account and press "Properties" on the right.
You need to copy the "Outgoing mail (SMTP)" text exactly to Field Track. You can select it all with the mouse and then by right-clicking the mouse and selecting "Copy". In Field Track right-click the "SMTP Server" text field and select "Paste". In the above pictured example the required SMTP server is:

Your STMP server is dependent on your ISP (Internet connection company). If you change your ISP, you will need to update Field Track with their SMTP address.

Diary Settings
This feature is only available to "Professional" users and allows you to have Field Track check your diary records each time you start Field Track. The days counter tells Field Track to display all records x number of days before and atfer today's date.

Field Track Direct
Field Track will attempt to use the Internet to download any recent information that maybe of interest to you. You can alter how many days Field Track should wait between attempts to do this. You can also switch off this feature and do it manually, however this is a great way to have Field Track check for updates and important development information.
