Feature suggestion: Customisable sender for email alerts

Started by Jeremy

WiFi Guard has the ability to send an email when an unknown device is detected. An improvement would be to allow the use of a sending address that is different from the account user name.

Please include this feature with the next software update.

In WiFi Guard Settings, on the E-mail tab, simply tick Use automatic settings. After that, WiFi Guard will be using our SMTP server and the emails will be coming from WiFi Guard (
