SABnzbd can send you emails about completion of jobs and about disk almost full condition.
You can send email through the SMTP server of your ISP. This is generally the easiest option, that doesn't require you to set a user account and password.
SABnzbd will try to use SSL secured email when supported by the mail server (this normally requires an user account and password).
Even Google mail (gmail.com) is possible.
It's possible to create your own email format by using templates.
|Errors||Send an email when a download fails for any reason|
|End-of-job notifications||Send an email after each job is completed and fully post-processed|
|Disk full notifications||Send an email when SABnzbd paused because the disk is almost full|
Email Account Settings
Check your email provider's instructions for the proper values.
|SMTP server||The mail server you use (eg smtp.my-isp.com). If needed you can append a non-standard mail port (e.g. special.my-isp.com:455)|
|Email recipient||The email address to which the emails must be sent.|
|Email sender||The email address of the sender. This can be a fake address, but you emails may be flagged as spam. Especially when you also set an account name and password, it is better to use your own real email address.|
|Account name||User name of the email account used to send the emails.|
|Account password||Password of the email account used to send the emails. WARNING: this password is stored as plain text in the INI file.|
How to setup for Google mail.
|Email firstname.lastname@example.org This can be a fake address, but you will have to put it in your Gmail contact list, otherwise Google will think you are sending spam.|
When you enable Growl messages, they will be automatically be sent to the default local Growl server.
You can also set an external server by setting a host address and an optional password.
Should the server use another port than the standard 23053 you can use the host:port notation.
Some Linux systems support the NotifyOSD protocol, a simpler cousin of Growl.
When SABnzbd detects support for this protocol, it will allow you to enable the service.
