Alarm Mail Page

Use this property page to specify the mail addresses of people to whom you want to send a message at the specified time. The message's subject is the name of the alarm, and the message's text is the alarm's message. (These are set on the General page.)


This is the list of recipients in the “To” list of the mail message. You can press the To button and use your address book (if any) to select the To, cc, and bc recipients. You can also enter their names (or a portion of their names) directly into those fields. Click the Resolve button to instruct Alarm++ to find those recipients in your address book. If it encounters an ambiguous address, Alarm++ will display a window asking you to resolve the conflict. (Alarm++ automatically resolves the addresses when you click the OK button, so this step is not required.)

You can also enter addresses in SMTP form which looks like this: “Mr. Some Name <>” (without the quotation marks). This will display the more readable name “Mr. Some Name” in your Outbox and in the e-mail message. Multiple e-mail addresses must be separated by a semicolon: “Mr. Some Name <>;Another Name <>”.

Note: The Address button is enabled only if you are using the Windows Personal Address Book.


This is the list of recipients in the “cc” list of the mail message.


This is the list of recipients in the “bc” list of the mail message.


This is the list of files that will be included with the message when it is sent.

To add a file to the list of attachments, click the Attach button. To remove an attached file from the list, select it in the Attachments listbox and click the Detach button.

You can also drag and drop the files you want to attach onto the dialog box; Alarm++ will automatically enter their paths in the list of attachments.


Alarm++ will try to use the SMTP protocol. In that case, the Address button will be disabled, but you can still enter addresses in the fields in SMTP format. In order for SMTP to work, you need to fill out the SMTP information in the Options Mail page.

Alarm++ also resolves the addresses when it sends the e-mail (i.e., when the event goes off). If it cannot resolve an address, it will display an error and not send the e-mail.

If there is an error when the application sends the message, it will display a message box.

Note: The Address and Resolve Names buttons are disabled if there is no e-mail support.

See the section on the Options Mail page for more information on e-mail support for alarms.
