E-mail Notification

By default, to control status of your tasks, you need to open the program′s main window and find them in the Task View pane. For more convenience, you can receive notifications about task results via e-mail. This behavior is task-specific and needs to be enabled for each task individually. For more details, please see New Task: Pre-, Post-Operation Actions.

E-mail notifications are sent by the Server component of the software. In settings, you need to specify parameters of your mail server, sender, message template, etc.
