Hey Traders,

Kindly help me on how I can set email alerts from MT4 to my email address. I was using  the set up in tools, Options, mail and used gmx.com. However it does not work anymore.

Have you set and enabled emails in the terminal? Tools => Option => Email ?

What does the log say if you test (send a test mail)?

  1. Now you now why
  2. At couldn't send reports from MetaTrader4 Administrator to Gmail Account - MQL4 and MetaTrader 4 - MQL4 programming forum the IBFX video specified mail.gmx.com:587.
  3. That address was down when I initially pinged it, but is now up. Retry your test.

Thank you for your help.

I have managed to set up mail using smtp2go. It has worked.

SOLUTION:

If people ever ask how to make mt4's email alerts work these days, for example with the proposed gmx.com free email server they need to log into gmx.com Settings page to enable "Send and receive emails via external program" and click Save button.
