still get the "The SMTP server name is required, and was not found in the configuration source" error message.
Umm, Are you quite sure you are using the 2009 version?
The 2009 version does not require you to enter the server details.
It only needs your name and email address.
I have attached a screen dump of my settings.
if I use Outlook but with 85 players having to allow each individual email is a pain
I use Outlook 2007 and do not get any error messages. Kirby Footy just puts the emails in the Outbox and they are sent.
Perhaps you need to install the Advanced Security for Outlook.
It is a free plug-in for Outlook that provides proper security alerts and allows you to set which applications can access Outlook, so you only need to authorise an application once.
Note that this is not a Kirby Software product and we do not provide support for it.
