GamePlan Software -- E-mail Setup
The GamePlan software provides the capability to e-mail reports to the
members in a ladder, tournament, or match schedule
(assuming that you have entered e-mail addresses with the player names).
If you will be using the e-mail feature,
you must provide the following information in the
Setup/Email dialog box:
The name and e-mail address of the sender.
This information appears in the heading of the e-mail,
to indicate who has sent the message.
SMTP server that you use to send outgoing e-mail.
This information is typically provided to you by your Internet Service Provider (ISP),
so that you can configure your e-mail program.
Note: If you are using a web-based e-mail program, you may not be able to
use this feature; see more information below.
If your outgoing mail server requires authentication
(again, this would be specified by your ISP),
then you should check the box and provide your user ID.
If you use a web-based e-mail system, such as Yahoo Mail,
you may or may not be able to use the GamePlan e-mail feature.
Please note that you must use an "SMTP" service to send e-mail from GamePlan.
You may be able to use the outgoing SMTP service of your ISP,
even if you are not otherwise using it for your regular e-mail processing.
Alternatively, you can access Yahoo Mail via SMTP, as described
For other web-based e-mail systems, you might try searching their help
for information on "SMTP."
E-mail Subject Line
The "subject" line for the e-mail message may be entered in either of two
Setup/Report_Heading... and enter a subject line
to be used whenever e-mail is sent for this ladder, tournament, or match schedule.
Or, the subject line can be entered at the time the message is sent.
Configuration Data Storage
Note: this e-mail configuration information is stored on the user's computer,
rather than in the GamePlan data file.
Therefore, it is not passed from one computer to another
if you move a GamePlan data file to a different computer.
Also, you only have to set up or change this data once,
and it is available for all GamePlan processing.
