"Email on Error Shutdown" in the MassLynx Shutdown Method works in MassLynx 4.1 SCN 918, SCN 919 minimum. It does not work in SCNs prior to SCN 918.


Enhancements to email programs such as Outlook have blocked third party software from generating and sending emails.

Windows 7 has a new feature, Live Mail, that does allow programs to send emails. SCN 918 and SCN 919 were updated to utilize Windows 7 Live Mail. Newer releases of MassLynx also use Live Mail.
