Have brand new security camera PVR and need little help. There is a auto email function that when motion is triggered, PVR sends me an email.


Okay, PVR setup screen is asking me the following:

1/ SMTP Service: which I put

2/ Port: I put 25 as there is nothing on the screen regarding SSL settings. (or should it be 587?)

3/ User name: which I put as my shaw email minus the

4/ Password: which I typed as the password in my Windows Live email setup

5/ Sender E-mail: which would be my full shaw email address.

6/ Reciever of E-mail: again my self, full shaw email address

7/ Email trigger: motion selected


So I guess the question is item 2: 25 or 587? Or do you suggest an other changes or something different?


I tried several setting and still no email sent. The neighbours must think I'm nuts going out and waving at the camera everytime. The PVR motion trigger does work as I records the motion segment and displays a popup.


Thank, biglar
