EmailAlert is a software utility that was built specifically in order to aid people send e-mails using an SMTP protocol, and tweak a few other options.
Seamless installation and simple interface
The setup process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer you to download any kind of products that are not actually necessary for the program to fully function and it does not last longer than a few seconds. After completing it, you come face to face with a minimal GUI, as it only includes several boxes and a few buttons.
Although no Help contents are supported, it becomes clear that all types of users can learn how to handle it with ease, regardless of their experience level.
Options to configure and method of use
This tool enables you to input the SMTP server and port you want to use, enable an SSL certificate and provide the required credentials (user name and passkey). In addition to that, you are also going to be required to input the recipient e-mail address, subject and message, while it optional to insert the time and date stamp, the computer name and user name of logged on user.
It is possible to send an e-mail test with all of the above information, write the current configuration to the registry as well as reload it. No other notable options are supported.
To sum up, EmailAlert is a pretty decent piece of software, which does not put a strain on the system’s performance as it requires little CPU and RAM in order to function. The interface is intuitive, all jobs are completed in a timely manner and we did not encounter stability issues such as bugs, errors or freezes. If you are interested in skipping the installation process, you should know that a portable edition is also available, namely EmailAlert Portable.
