Optimizations

 

Email

Awasu now has new infrastructure for sending emails, which is configured in the Advanced tab of the Program Options dialog. This works much better than the old system, and also allows emails to be sent via public email services such as GMail or Hotmail.

If you are using the SendEmail channel hook, this extension now uses the above global SMTP settings (instead of having its own settings). This means you must configure your SMTP settings, as described above, otherwise it will not be able to send emails.

Configuring Awasu to use a standard SMTP server

To configure Awasu to use a standard SMTP server to send emails:
  • Enter the server address. If the server uses a non-standard port (i.e. not port 25), append it to the address e.g. myserver.com:123.
  • Enter the username and password.
  • Most SMTP servers will also require you to login before sending any emails.

Configuring Awasu to use GMail

To configure Awasu to use GMail to send emails:
  • Enter a server address of gmail.com:465.
  • Enter your username and password.
  • Enable SSL and login.

Configuring Awasu to use Hotmail

To configure Awasu to use Hotmail to send emails:
  • Enter a server address of smtp.live.com:587.
  • Enter your username and password.
  • Enable TLS and login.
