Click the corresponding button on the toolbar or select the Settings / Common Settings
menu item to view or change the currently used program settings. It will open a new window.
The settings are grouped into five main categories. They are:
Here you can change the main settings of Atomic Mail Sender.
||The number of email messages that can be sent simultaneously. The recommended
value is between 20-50. Setting this value to 100+ is fine if you have a
fast computer and a broadband Internet connection.
||How long Atomic Mail Sender should wait for a server response. The recommended
value is 60 seconds.
|Attempts to send
||How many times Atomic Mail Sender should try to connect to servers. If
the target mail server does not respond the first time, the program tries
to connect again. The recommended value is 3.
HELO address is the address of your computer name on the Internet. Usually,
Atomic Mail Sender can detect it automatically, but in some cases it fails
to do it.
It is recommended to keep this value blank for Atomic Mail Sender to
detect it itself. Even if it fails, it will offer you to edit it.
||You can reduce the speed of sending email. To remove any speed limits,
please set it to a very large value by default, say 1000000 messages / minute.
| TO field
A way how Atomic Mail Sender will create the user name (i. e. how it
will fill TO field).
If "Autogenerate" is used, Atomic Mail Sender will create it
out of the email address. For example, if the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org,
then it will create "Bill" <email@example.com>.
If "Load from list" is used, Atomic Mail Sender will load the
user name from the second data column in the Recipients List.
You can specify the type of email delivery. Atomic Mail Sender supports the
following types of email delivery:
In this mode Atomic Mail Sender puts all email messages to the recipients'
mailboxes. This method is the fastest one, but you should be aware that some
ISPs deny direct access (i. e. they close SMTP port #25).
- Directly. On error use SMTP
Atomic Mail Sender tries to send mail directly, but if a fatal error occurs,
it will deliver email via the specified SMTP server.
- Directly. For some domains use SMTP
Atomic Mail Sender will deliver all messages directly, excluding the messages
specified in the list at the bottom. You can use that list to enter the masks
of messages to be sent via SMTP. For example, if you enter @aol.com
and @wanadoo.fr, all messages to these email addresses will be sent via the
third-party SMTP server.
- Using external SMTP only
All email messages will be sent via the specified SMTP server.
In SMTP Servers List you need add or edit your SMTP servers to deliver e-mail
messages. Click + to add new, - to delete or double click to edit.
DNS servers for resolving the target mail servers email messages should be delivered to. Usually,
Atomic Mail Sender can detect DNS servers automatically. If you want to use another
DNS server or Atomic Mail Sender fails to detect it automatically, select Use
the following DNS servers and specify it.
and proxy server editing window:
Atomic Mail Sender can send mail using socks/proxy servers. It supports the
following types of proxy servers:
- HTTP proxy
- Socks 4
- Socks 4A
- Socks 5
Select a proxy server type in the list and enter the server address and port.
If the proxy server requires authentication, please enter the user name and
password there too. Otherwise leave these fields blank.
Additional SMTP headers
Here you can add your own hidden header to the message:
We do not recommend to change anything here if you do not know how to do it.
This can cause too many refuses from recipients' mail servers.
Some additional settings are available here. You can configure Atomic Mail Sender
to play a sound after completing the job.
Create log files - create logs for outgoing connections.
It is recommended to enable this option because if you have any troubles sending
mail, we ask you to send us these logs to detect the problem and fix it.
Create newsletter delivery report - make an HTML
report for sent messages. Then you should use Service
/ View reports to see these reports.
Play sound - when mail is sent, Atomic Mail Sender will
play the specified wave file.
Custom Newsletter tracking path - change it only
if you host your own newsletter tracking scripts on your server. Otherwise keep
