Hello

I was using asctrend and I added the SendMail() function, but it doesn't work. What is the problem?

   if( BuyBuffer[1]!=0 ) 
     {
      if(counter<NumberofAlerts) 
        {
         counter++; 
         if(SoundON) 
           {
            Alert("ASC_TREND BUY signal at Ask=",Ask,"\n Bid=",Bid,"\n currtime=",text,"\n Symbol=",Symbol()," Period=",sPeriod);
            PlaySound("matrixrevolution.wav");
            //  PlaySound("SysAlert1.wav");
            //   PlaySound("samsam.wav");
            //    PlaySound("Alert_Play.wav");
            }
         SendMail("ASC_TREND : BUY signal alert","BUY signal at Ask="+sAsk+", Bid="+sBid+", Date="+text+" Symbol="+Symbol()+" Period="+sPeriod);
         if(PushON) SendNotification("ASC_TREND: BUY signal at Ask="+sAsk+", Bid="+sBid+", Date="+text+" Symbol="+Symbol()+" Period="+sPeriod);
        }
     } 
      
   if(SellBuffer[1]!=0 ) 
     { 
      if(counter<NumberofAlerts)
        {
         counter++;
         if(SoundON)
           {
            Alert("ASC_TREND SELL signal at Ask=",sAsk,"\n Bid=",sBid,"\n Date=",text,"\n Symbol=",Symbol()," Period=",sPeriod);
            PlaySound("matrixrevolution.wav");
            //  PlaySound("SysAlert1.wav");
            //  PlaySound("samsam.wav");
            //    PlaySound("Alert_Play.wav");
           }
         SendMail("ASC_TREND","SELL signal at Ask="+sAsk+", Bid="+sBid+", Date="+text+" Symbol="+Symbol()+" Period="+sPeriod);
         if(PushON) SendNotification("ASC_TREND: SELL signal at Ask="+sAsk+", Bid="+sBid+", Date="+text+" Symbol="+Symbol()+" Period="+sPeriod);
        }
     }

Why don't you check the return value?

bool  SendMail()

Return Value

true – if an email is put into the send queue, otherwise - false.

Note

Sending can be prohibited in settings, email address can be omitted as well. For the error information call GetLastError().

SendMail() function does not work in the Strategy Tester.

You must correctly configure the e-mail in MetaTrader 5. Please show me a screenshot of the "Settings" -> "Email".

Example: How do I configure gmail.com, if you enable two-step authorization. Below is an example in Russian setting - if something is unclear - ask me:

Как настроить почту в программе метатрейдер4

Karputov Vladimir, 2016.06.30 20:02

На примере аккаунта Google с двухэтапной аутентификацией.

Для начала нужно создать пароль приложения - для безопасности создаётся пароль для отдельного приложения:

Перейдите на эту страницу. Если потребуется, войдите в аккаунт Google.

, в данном случае назовём приложение "MetaTrader 4" и сгенерируем для него пароль:

Создание пароля приложения

 

Теперь этот сгенерированный пароль можно вставлять в настройки терминала, вкладка "Почта", поле "SMTP пароль":

Настройки почты в MetaTrader

 

Нажимаем кнопку "Тест" и смотрим во вкладку "Журнал":

2016.06.30 20:55:27.729 Mail: 'Test message' has been sent

 

Проверяю почтовую программу - письмо пришло!

thanks for your advice. I have not used the return value, I will test it further. I know the settings problem and... you kno, the only error I have is the autotrade error and that is because I turned it off.

finally, I'm not testing it that way, i just use it for the trade time and nothing else. please do me a favor, I attach the file and just take a look at it. thank you

I know what you mean, and I have changed the settings for using some python programs for email. and also I checked the email settings for MT5 and that was exactly like what you said. There is a problem that this NOT a usual MT5 version and is used for iranian stocks market, but I have sent emails by other indicators using this version of MT5.

after all I attached the file to the previous comment. you can take a better look at it. thank you:)
