Mail

 

Purpose

 

Send an email message when the task of the module to which it is connected finishes.

Note: Depending on the mail server it may be necessary to make some specific adjustments. In the case of Gmail you have to permit that a message can be sent by external applications.

For doing that you can access your account settings from a web browser. After logging in to access your Google account, click on the user picture in the upper right corner and select "Manage your Google account". Now in the menu on the left select "Security". Find the panel "Access of unsafe applications" and ensure it is activated.  If you wish you can also create a dedicated email account for this function.
