Email using Outlook

Post by Alf » Mon Jan 20, 2020 7:28 am

I am setting the trial version to test the email using Gmail. Connection to Gmail is verified. However, when I try to send a test email, it opens Outlook and waits for me to finish the email in Outlook. I want the program to send an email to me automatically via Gmail, not Outlook. Please advise.

Also, have you considered a less expensive version for home users which would provide email capabilities? I just want a program to send an email reminder to ME only.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Alf, welcome to the forums. Could you clarify? In the Email Settings (accessed from the Options menu), have you selected "Use Google Mail"? When you click the "Send a Test Email" button at the bottom of the Email Settings window, does the email get sent or does Outlook open?

I'm not sure why Outlook would open when the "Send a Test Email" button is clicked on the Email Settings window. When that button is clicked, VueMinder will connect to the Google Mail API for sending a test email. This same mechanism is used when email reminders are automatically sent.

Are you trying to test the email settings using a button elsewhere in VueMinder?
