Automation Workshop v4.5 released

We heard your feedback and we’re taking action! We have added your long awaited subscription plans. Now you can split payments to smaller ones: monthly or quarterly.

The new subscriptions come with great benefits. Once subscribed, you will have free minor and major updates available without any additional fees. You can upgrade and downgrade anytime you want. Everything just works!

We also have deprecated OpenSSL libraries. From now Automation Workshop uses Windows built-in TLS/SSL solution, that guarantees that all security and feature updates are automatically included in the Windows Updates.

Security of communication channels are important for businesses, and we have introduced a setting to control the version of TLS/SSL used. You can now opt-in to use insecure and outdated SSLv3 for legacy systems, or to use industry standard TLS 1.2 to connect to modern systems in the most secure way possible.

Does febootimail work with Gmail

Our support team has been asked like a thousand times, does febootimail work with Gmail and what is command line syntax? What SMTP server should I use?

The answer is YES. Febootimail works with Gmail using automatic authentication, or alternatively you must explicitly specify SSL or TLS command line arguments/parameters.

So, what is the syntax? The recommended way is to use automatic authentication. Google is enforcing use of SSL for all of its services, so using AUTH AUTO will automatically enable TLS/SSL.

Here is an example:
febootimail -SERVER -AUTH AUTO -USER -PASS *********** -FROM -TO -SUBJ "Gmail test" -TEXT "Testing Gmail. It is easy and secure!"

All command line arguments/parameters used:
-PASS ***********
-SUBJ "Gmail test"
-TEXT "Testing Gmail. It is easy and secure!"

Need help on parameters? Here is a help: All command line email parameters explained.

NOTE: you can only send emails using your Gmail’s email address in the FROM field. Other addresses will not work.

Some more examples, if you want to tweak your command line parameters:

NOTE 2: SSL by default uses port 465, TLS uses regular (default) SMTP port 25, but you can choose to use client (MUA) port 587. More info here: Google Gmail support.
