Send an Email for each Stock Alert

You can use existing plugins to Growl to send an email each time StockMarketEye notifies of a Stock Alert.

If you have not already done so, you’ll first need to install Growl.

NOTE: StockMarketEye needs to be running in order for alerts to be forwarded.

Mac OS X - Email Alerts Configuration

Open the Growl Preferences window by double clicking on the “Growl” Application. Then cick on the “Displays” tab and click on the “MailMe” Action.

Enter the email address to which you would like to forward the notifications in the “To” field. Fill in the other fields as necessary. For the “SMTP Server” settings, you should use the settings provided by your email provider.

Now, every time that StockMarketEye sends a stock alert, it will be forwarded to your email account. If you are not receiving the email messages, first check that the settings of the growl MailMe or MailMeToo plugin are correct. You may also want to check your spam folder in case your spam filter is overzealous.
