Before guests send any emails you need to set up the email server settings.
Start the program, and go to the Email Server Settings sreen
The values of Host, Username, Password, Email and Port (4) you enter on the Email Server Settings screen are specific to your email provider.
To send an email you have to enter the host name and port number of your email server. Most email servers also require a username and a password. We recommend checking Use SSL for secure email for additional security.
(5) To include the name of the sender with the email address enter the name followed by the email address enclosed in angle brackets e.g. Sue’s Blog <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Before you move on, check everything works by sending a test email to your own email address (6). DSLR Remote Pro displays Email sent successfully (7) when this message has been sent. Check that you receive the test email.

Note: Webcam 2.5.1 cannot send emails in the background via Hub, as it cannot create XML copies of emails.
If the Internet connection at an event is flaky or non-existent save the email details and send them later. Check (11) Offline email mode as well as Log email addresses to file (8) above.
*Webcam Photobooth 2.5.1 cannot email images from gmail accounts due to changes Google have made to Gmail security. This will be fixed in the next release. Guests can still send emails to gmail accounts.
Hub can share emails and texts sent from Breeze Booth (Windows+ DSLR) aka DSLR Remote Pro, Breeze Booth (iPad+ iPhone) and Kiosk. Hub is free for all Breeze customers to use with our software. Emails shared by Hub use the email account details held in Hub (not those stored in the photo booth or Kiosk App).
