emailQ.NET Manager

Instead of sending the message immediately, Smtp.NET creates a file with a ".eml" file extension. Eml files contain configuration name/value pairs that are recognized by Microsoft IIS Smtp Server and emailQ.NET:

  1. The "Mode" can be either "Windows Service Mode" or "Windows Applicatin Mode". Windows Service mode can only be run on Windows NT/2000/XP, which are based on NT technology. Windows Application Mode can be run on any of the Windows OSs supported by emailQ.NET
  2. The "Status" displays the current status of emailQ.NET.
    Valid statuses for Windows Service Mode are:
    Displayed ValueDescription
    ContinuePending The service continue is pending.
    Paused The service is paused.
    PausePending The service pause is pending.
    Running The service is running.
    StartPending The service is starting.
    Stopped The service is stopping.
    StopPending The service is not running.

    Valid statuses for Windows Application Mode are:
    Displayed ValueDescription
    Running The service is running.
    Stopped The service is stopping.
  3. Action Buttons Start and Stop. These buttons will either stop or start the Service or Application.
    Note: If emailQ.NET is in Windows Application Mode, and the emailQ.NET Manager application is closed, emailQ.NET will be stopped.
  4. Settings. The settings for emailQ.NET are stored in the System Registry. The keys and values stored in the registry must be accessible by emailQ.NET, in order for it to operate. Each of the settings have the following options:
    • Queue Directory: Specifies the directory that emailQ.NET should monitor for Eml files. emailQ.NET will not run if this field is blank.
    • Pickup Directory: Specifies the directory that emailQ.NET should move Eml files for the Pickup Directory. This field is optional.
    • Scan Frequency (in seconds): The number of seconds that emailQ.NET should scan the Queue and Scheduled directories for new Eml files.
    • Delete After Send: Specifies whether or not emailQ.NET should delete the processed Eml file after the associated message has been successfully sent instead of moving the Eml file to the "Sent" directory.
    • Max Threads: Specifies the maximum number of threads emailQ.NET should use to send messages. The default value is 20. For systems with a CPU running at 1Mhz or greater or multi-processor systems, this number can be increased. It is not recommended that this number exceed 100 as the performance of the entire system will decrease due to the overhead that Windows will have managing threads.
    • Run As Service: If checked, emailQ.NET will run in "Windows Service Mode", if unchecked, emailQ.NET will run in "Windows Application Mode".
