email authentication

I am using the mailer feature of lookout to email alarms. This has been working successfully for the last year. ATT/yahoo is the internet/mail providor. ATT is now requiring outgoing authentication as well as incoming port # 995 and Outgoing port # 465 with Secure connect SSL. The emails are no longer going through. I receive an SMTP mail failure. Please advise on how to solve this problem. Does

We are having the same issue with Outlook 6.7.

We have addressed this in several ways over the last few years:

  1. If you have Lookout 6.7 or the versions that support authentication Install stunnel from stunnel.org and point your mailer object to localhost on port 25 with the user name & password used for your email account. Stunnell will take care of the encryption. We use this a lot with gmail.
  2. On any version of Lookout running on Windows 7 or higher, Install Node-Red (nodered.org). You will then have to create a communication mechanism between Node-Red and Lookout. This can be done with the Modbus capabilities  of both programs or for a more versatile solution using UDP or TCP with the Lookout IPASCII object. This will allow you to pass Lookout $Alarm.message to Node-Red and let Node-Red take care of sending the authenticated and encrypted email. Triggering the IPASCII send with an expression using the $Alarm.update and $Alarm.priority you can easily filter alrms that are sent as emails or text messages. This will require a little learning Node-Red but it is well worth it.
