What's this?

The e-mail plug-in allows you to transfer a broadcast to your e-mail handler and to send e-mails containing information on a broadcast.

Using the plug-in

Using the plug-in is easy. You can simply right-click on a broadcast and choose the plug-in from the context menu. Or you export a broadcast into this plug-in by double-clicking on the broadcast and choosing "Send via e-mail" from the "Functions" menu on the left. In both cases, a n e-mail will be generated containing all the information on all the broadcasts.

Use default e-mail handler is set as default and the plug-in will try to use the e-mail handler on your system which you have chosen as default. If this does not work or if you would like to use a different e-mail handler, please un-check this option and specify the program manually. Please also specify a parameter for sending the e-mail in the parameter line. In most cases {0} will do as default setting. If not, please enter the address you would like to send your e-mail to. {0} will then be replaced by "mailto:[]".

In order to change the setting for text layout and font, please click on Additional settings. The following pop-up window will open:

Your entry under "Parameter" will then be saved in a certain character set. UTF8 should be working in most cases. If you are having problems with umlauts or similar characters, you should try a different character set, e.g. ISO-8859-1 which is widely in use.

Finally, you may layout your message text according to your wishes. If your would like to do that, please read hier before doing so.
