Title: email image
Post by: hpdrifter on November 07, 2011, 11:52:40 AM
I've asked this question before, but will try again.

I would like to know what it takes to email an image.

I can get a regular text email via Myhouse/Smart macros via Advanced functions/email.

I can send my image to my phone thru my email account(yahoo)

I use Video function/send image/send latest image in smart macros..

It is my understanding that Myhouse uses C:/MyImages/snapshot to send images, at least that is what my configuration box states under Tools/Preferences/General video/storage locations.

Also have tried the Stills folder.

I don't know if this is a MyHouse or Smart Macros issue.

When the  Email Image  function is planted into the macro tree, a regular text message box appears, I enter a simple Subject and a "Help" message and once clicked OK is performed, the Email Image comes up and I just click "Email latest image".
Has anybody emailed a image successfully????

I've email images without an issue but it has been ages since I've done so.
I had thought a resent update may have introduced a bug but I'm still able to get my images.
However I'm using a different send address then my receiving one.

I get multiple images emailed to my address. Macro is triggered by a sensor. Only drawback is pc has to be on and AHP running. Send me your macro and I'll see what I can do.

don't know how to post a real live macro, but it goes like this:

Trigger   O2 on
Email Image------Video function
  address: xxx641xxxx@mms.att.net
  subject: Visitors
  text:  Help!
   (email last image)
Delay  10sec
O2 off

The delay has been removed, shortened, lengthened. As well as the O2 off Module function.

I've had a Delay of anywhere from 2-10 seconds before the Email Image.

I can send a TEXT message with the macro, but no Image.
