The basic settings for e-mail distribution can be found in the general settings (e.g. on the "Start" tab) under "Miscellaneous | E-Mail".

 

If the computer where Untis is running already has a functioning e-mail application installed such as Outlook Express or Outlook, sending e-mails from Untis will work without any furtherchange of settings since Untis will activate the appropriate mail system automatically.

 

In this case you will see e-mails in the usual manner as sent e-mails in your e-mail application. Untis supports both mail interfaces MAPI (e.g. for Microsoft Outlook) and Simple MAPI (e.g. for Microsoft Outlook Express).

In order for Untis to be able to use your mail application to send e-mails it must support one of these e-mail interfaces and Untis must also be defined in your system settings as standard e-mail application. (You can find this setting under Windows 7 under "Default programs").

 

If you have your own mail server, you still can use Untis to send e-mails. In this case you must select the SMTP setting and add the name (or IP address) of a mail server that you have access to, e.g. mail.my-school.org, and your own e-mail address (e.g. plan@my-school.org ). Select SMTP as mail system. If your server requires authentication before sending you can also enter the user name and password on this tab.

Activating the “Keep a log file” option results in Untis writing a line with the most important data for each e-mail sent in a log file. The log data are by default written to a file named "untis_mail.log" in the directory C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\ Application Data \Untis. <username> is your user name in the system. Under older operating systems you will find the “untis_mail.log” file in the Untis program directory.
