First add a mailer into the Periphery, click on the Periphery tab and under the 'Messages' drop down list you will find the mailer.

Now in the properties you can enter the messages which the mailer sends out and define the SMTP server which is the outgoing mail server for the sender's address.

For the Mailer to work, it is essential that a DNS server has been entered. In a dynamic network, this will normally happen automatically.

If necessary, you can manually assign the DNS server using the Admin Interface.

Please note that SSL-Encrypted mail servers are not supported by the Miniserver.
GMX does not allow PLAIN authentication in the UK.


The Logger collects events in a log file. Any number of log files can be created. The events can also be sent to a syslog server or a UDP receiver.


Logger address

In this field, enter the log-file where the messages should be written. If left blank, the standard log (def.log) will be used. This log can be found on the Miniserver's FTP server (ftp://username:password@miniserver/log).

When the /log/temperature.log file is being written to, then a separate log file called temperature.log is created and stored on the FTP server.

Messages with ON/OFF/analogue changes

Specify in these fields which messages are written in the log file or sent to the syslog or UDP server.

Example configuration of a logger

In this example, a temperature is dynamically written to the log file.

With this configuration, whenever the analogue value changes, the current value is written to the temperature.log file.
