4.0 LevelSender Configuration

4.1 Home Station Email Setup

To enable your Home Station to receive emails and data, and send remote updates, you must set up a Home Station email. Multiple LevelSender stations can report to one Home Station email. It is recommended that a unique, dedicated email address be set up for your Home Station.

Note:

If you open data report messages sent to the Home Station email using the email program and not LevelSender Software, those reports will not be listed in the Received Email window. Only "unread" messages will be listed. This is why a dedicated, unique email address is recommended for the Home Station.

Note:

The LevelSender system supports using dynamic IPs for the Home Station and the remote LevelSender stations.

To set up an email for your Home Station, click email setup icon. You can also go to the Configuration menu and select Email Account Configuration.

You can access the LevelSender Email Client at any time to view all emails received or sent by the Home Station, including test emails.
