Choose your e-mail method

By default IDimager is configured to send e-mails through MAPI. A MAPI client is an e-mail program that is able to handle e-mail requests by other applications. IDimager will construct the full e-mail message and offer it to your favorite e-mail program which handles the mail sending process. This way you won’t have to think about server settings etcetera.
If you don’t want to use the MAPI mail client for sending out photos you can also use the integrated e-mail facility. This facility is a simple e-mail client that can be used to send e-mails.
To change your e-mail method, for example from MAPI to integrated or visa versa, you can use the e-mail options. Open the options dialog by selecting “Tools | Options” from the main menu. You can also press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[O]. Then select "General Settings | E-Mail"
Here is where you can select your favorite e-mail method.
If you choose the internal e-mail client then you must provide the login settings for your email server. These are normally the same as how you have configured you normal e-mail program. If you don’t know the settings then lookup the documentation of your internet server provider.
