Actually, I found out what the problem was. Seems that it didn't like the %concat(@cdoprefix, "blah") stuff. Changing it to the actual link works.

Love using it since now I can email notes directly to myself. :)

I have tried the script to send email from CMUD but keep getting an error message. I have MS Office 2007 installed so hopefully the relevant libraries are in place.

When I try to sendmail I get an error dialog box appear that says:
Error parsing command. The "sendusing" configuration value is invalid.

I have checked all of the variables that I edited and they all look ok (sendpassword, sendusername, etc)

Any suggestions?
Thanks
EZ

The problem is using the variable cdoprefix. For whatever reason, it's not being treated correctly. I never really looked into the problem, whether it was some syntax I was missing or something else, but I did manage to fix it.

Currently, I'm sending emails in HTML formats, though you can change it back to text if you like. Here's the link you can use to get your email script working in CMUD. Keep in mind that it's currently configured for gmail (minus the passwords/usernames/etc), so if you use a different email, you'll need to figure out how to configure it yourself.

Basic Note Email Script (XML)

(Yes, I know cdoprefix is still defined. It's just not being used for anything right now.)

Copy it, open the Package Editor by clicking Settings at the top, and paste.

Because that's not what you're supposed to do to import. Just paste directly into the package editor, not into an alias (press Ctrl+V, or go to Edit -> Paste).

That issue appeared on the previous page of this topic. Just set defaultfrom to your email address only.

Try it and if that fails then change the following variable

#VAR MsgObj.From %expand( @DefaultFrom, 1)

to

#VAR MsgObj.From "xxx@gmail.com"

Thanks!

I had this same problem as well trying to get it working on windows 7 Zmud 7.21. the solution i found was that i needed to enable access for less secure apps for my gmail account in question by:

Logging into the address you want to use for sending the email.
Visit the page: https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps
Click Enable Less Secure Apps.
Click Done.

I hope that helps.

now, if i can only figure out how to trigger off of an email received that would be great!
