    Default Email profile on web server??

    How do you set the email profile for the built in client when you are using a remote server or does the profile get published along with the rest of the components and databases?

    The email profile does not get published. You will need to have the ISP set up an email profile for you.

    Aaron Thats been done. You create profiles, about the accounts that you have, in Alpha that are used in Email functions. I have a couple that I used with the local WAS but now that the site is on a host are these profiles available or do I have to hard code the functions with the username password etc.

    The profile is available on the server if the ISP has set it up for you. You will just have to specify the profile name whenever you do an email_send() or email_receive().

    Is there a special way we need to setup the Stand Alone WEB version of A5V7? If so how do we set it up to use the email.

    We haven't gotten around to the email part of our web app yet but will need it.

    Jerry will you have your own server or are you going to use a remote host.

    If its the latter I let you know after I finish fumbling around to set up mine.

    I have the stand alone ver of A5v7 WEB on our own server.

    FYI: We do NOT have the Dev version of the app loaded on that server just the stand alone WEB version

    Thanks

    There is no way to configure email profiles in the web-only version right now, which is an oversight we are going to correct.

    Do I need to purchase the full version and load it on the machine to get this working or will there be a fix coming in the next several days?

    FYI: Its not urgent today but I will need it soon?

    We'll get something out shortly. There is no need to purchase the full version because of this.

    This has now been addressed and the next patch will include the fix. Sorry for the incovenience.

    If you'd like to set up an email profile now without waiting for the patch, you can download and install the A5v7 trial from our home page and install that on your server. Even though it is in trial mode, you will be able to create a profile which will then be visible to the Web App Server.

    Lenny - your WAS patch 11/14 did not contain any way to update the email profile (unless I can't find it). Also, the patch "came with" a 30 day trial session that I cannot remove. Is that going to present a problem?

    Does your systray icon not look like the one shown here?: http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...00&postcount=4

    Yes, except it is green. Dbl-click brings up the CP.

    You might put the build number somewhere on the CP. I just ran the upgrade, and know it is applied, but I can't confirm that by looking at the CP.

    You'll notice that the menu above also has Check For New Version. This dialog shows you your current version.

    It looks like the systray menu changes did not make it into the last patch, but they will be in the next one.

    There is no need to remove the 30 day trial license. If you have a full license install, your server will continue working past the 30 days.
