VERY simple program to look at, just hit test mail, to see if your email settings in the INI file are all ok.
you dont need to configure the email section in the ini file, in case you only use the URL deliver data mode for ThingSpeak.com or any similar service
Here is how it all works. for a wired solution, RS232 could actually be the good old DB9 connector and MAX232 IC, but today more likely FTDI232 and USB
the smart thing about the USB to serial converter is you can also power supply it all from the pc.
All you need is one Arduino or similar construction and a bunch of sensors, what ever you want to measure
ComMailDistribution2.zip Windows executeable and doc
ComMailHowToUse.txt only the doc
This page was updated: Dec 3 2015, added URL deliver option for Thingspeak or similar.
New features add will depend on the contributions we receive from users,
all money received will be put into features and bug fixing and futher development of this
so please read the doc and pay a few $ if you use and like this, (your own choise to do so or not)
Receiver side : running full speed, scanning radio data for lead ind, sensor data, and good checksum, if ok, then update internal variables, and setup scheduler for data delivery to PC
some systems like ThingSpeak can not handle data too much or too fast, so better send as little as needed
The receiver side (very erly version prototype) uses AVR MEGA 168 and crystal, board is from the junkyard = 0$
a crystal is needed to be able to handle serial to the pc within timing specs
