Send e-mail message

With this type of scheduled task selected, Advanced Task Scheduler sends an e-mail message.

Click the E-mail button to open the properties window where you can define one or more e-mail addresses separated by comma or semicolon, SMTP server address and port number. Also you can define sender address and message subject.

An attachment can be added to the message. Professional and Network Editions: Several attachments can be added to a single message.

Professional and Network Editions: Since version 4.0 you can include the return code of the previous action in an email body. To do so, the following arguments can be used in the email body:

%actionschedule% Will be replaced by name of the action that caused task execution.
%actiontime% Will be replaced by time of start of task execution.
%actionsource% Will be replaced by action source information.
%actionsourceextra% Will be replaced by action source extra information.
%lasterrorcode% Will be replaced by LastErrorCode.

The %lasterrorcode% and %lastexitcode% arguments depend on the previous shortcut type and you can find their meanings in the corresponding shortcut description.
