To send log files via email SoftActivity Keylogger needs an SMTP server as any email client program does.|
If you have a Yahoo email account, you can use yahoo smtp server for SoftActivity KeyloggerÂ to send log files. You will need to enter following information in Setup Email Server in SoftActivity Keylogger:
Outgoing mail server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Use SMTP authentication: Yes
User Name: your Yahoo account name (part before @)
Password: your Yahoo password
Mark "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" check box. Make sure that Port number is set to: 465
Click Test Connection button. Make sure it says Connection is Successful.
Then you need to enter your email address in Send To field. It can be any email address, such as for example, your work email, where you want to receive reports about your child's computer activity at home computer. There is no requirement that it should be yahoo address.
In From field enter your yahoo email that was used in previous step in user name.
Click Send Test Email and make sure there are no error messages.
Note that you will need to install the SoftActivity Reports Viewer on the computer where you receive email with logs in order to view them. To do this download and run SoftActivity Keylogger installation and select "Only SoftActivity Reports Viewer" option at the first page instead of "Full Installation". No extra license of the software is required to install Reports Viewer
