forsure, I believe cameras use smtp emails. Many isp's block smtp emails, except for their own. If you are trying a gmail or yahoo address, it may not work. Use the isp email address that is the same as the cameras isp. If the camera accesses the net through comcast, use a comcast email address for notification delivery.

My guess is that your camera, like most, doesn't provide SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. Most e-mail providers that allow SMTP connections require this.
You'll have to download a tiny program, called Stunnel (thank you to the fine folks who created this and made it open source; the world owes you!) Here's the link to the .exe files:
http://www.stunnel.org/download/binaries.html
Install it, and open the file "stunnel.conf" in notepad. You don't need most of the stuff in there, so you can comment out the protocol for pop3 and imaps. You will need these lines:

client = yes

[ssmtp]
accept = 25
connect = smtp.gmail.com:465


"Accept" is the port that your camera sends the e-mail with (remember, an IP camera is actually a tiny computer). I had to use the default of 25, since the geniuses at TrendNet didn't give me any other option (port 25 is blocked by just about everyone these days). After you make these changes, run Stunnel (you can also set it to run as a service so that it starts every time Windows does.
"Connect" is the email server you want to connect to and the port that it accepts e-mails on. I've used gmail and it's default port in this example.

You're not done yet, though. You'll have to change the server in your camera settings from gmail's to the IP of your computer. Why? Because you'll need to send the e-mail from the camera to your computer first, where Stunnel will grab it and reroute it securely to gmail. If you don't know your computer's IP, grab it using ipconfig from the command prompt (available under Accesories in the Win XP start menu.
I pray that works for you. I was thrilled when that test e-mail finally went through.

This stunnel solution has been posted 2 years ago by someone.
I think it is ethical to acknowledged that those exact words were quoted from here:
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080125185022AAq4cne

I've used this stunnel progam as well.

Thanks to Paul K.

I also cannot get email notifications.

I tried the normal setup and the stunnel setup (using my computers IP etc..also.
I can set my port to 465 (for gmail) and that wont work either.

In either case I get a popup window that displays:

Quote:
Test server
Test Failed!!
Error: Email sending failed



I have another program for testing the email link and I do get replies from gmail to my yahoo account. It seems the problem is in the IP camera.

Here is how I have the "Event Server -Email" Page setup:

Quote:
SMTP Server Address: smtp.gmail.com
Port Number: 465
Sender Email Address: myname@gmail.com
Authentication Mode: SMTP
Sender User Name: myname@gmail.com
Sender Password: *****************
Receiver #1 Email Address: myname@yahoo.com
Send Email With: One Snapshot


I have Trendnet Model: TV-IP422W/A

Hello!

I had the same problem today with my new IP422W and found this forum here.

After I filled in the primary DNS (which is in my Fritz!Box the same as the default gateway) in the network menu, it works.

Thanks for the reply!

I also have my DNS and gateway set to match my router, but it doesn't work for me. or Are you saying you filled in the DNS box with your default gateway address rather than your DNS server address? or the other way around?
