Urgent: Out of disk space, server connection lost These two conditions are matters that may require your attention as soon as possible. If disk space is used up, download status will be set to pause or in the case of a already completed file error. The progress changes to a yellow and black striped bar in this case. If the server connection is lost, eMule will attempt to reconnect to another server in most cases.
For the events marked with an asterisk (*) an email can be send as notification. Check the Enable Email Notifications and provide the following information to use this feature.
This is the server that will be responsible for sending the mail. Usually you have no local SMTP server running, so you have to provide either the server of your ISP or the one of a free mail service like GMX. Most SMTP servers will require authentication (a username and password) to send mails. This is done to protect the server from being abused as a public relay by spammers. Currently eMule does not yet offer the possibility of submitting authentication information to an SMTP server.
To successfully use this feature, enter an SMTP server and in the following boxes provide mail addresses that belong to this server. You may find that your ISP's SMTP server has less stringent restrictions, as you can be identified by having a connection from the ISP's network.
