Remote Log Delivery with NetVizor

NetVizor has the unique ability to allow you to have its activity logs delivered to your personal e-mail address every xxx minutes as desired. This allows you to remotely keep tabs on remote computers that may be off-network.

Email Log Delivery

Setting it up

SMTP Host: This is your mail host that you use for your email clients. If you do not know this contact your ISP or system administrator. You can configure NetVizor to use an alternate SMTP port on your email host by configuring the host in the following format - hostname:alternateport (example:

Recipient: This is where the logs are delivered to. Most likely your own personal email address.

Mail From: This is the address where your mail will be sending from. It is a good idea to use your own email address for this, or you can make up one (but this may not sometimes work well).

SMTP Authentication: If your SMTP host requires authentication on outgoing email then this option should be configured.

How to enable this option: you can turn this feature on by clicking on "Email Log Delivery" in the GENERAL SETTINGS menu.

Viewing Logs

Once the logs are emailed to you, you can view the logs inside your own email software that you commonly used. All logs are text format, and can be saved by simply going to the Save email feature within your email client.

Frequent Email Delivery Questions

Here are some common questions users have about the email delivery process:

Q: Does NetVizor use my email program to send the logs?
A: No - NetVizor uses its own built in emailer - all logs are sent invisibly.

Q: What if I am offline, are the logs sent - or will NetVizor try to sign on?
A: No - NetVizor will not send logs, or attempt to send logs, if your PC is offline - it will wait until the user is online - then send all logs.

Q: I am using the default NetVizor Email Delivery options with as my server
but it will still not send, what's wrong?
A: Try changing your mail from and SMTP host address to the ones you use in your own email software, such as Outlook Express. If you are using an ISP like Microsoft Network the logs may not send with as your server because some ISPs tend to block outside party email servers.

Q: Can I test the email delivery without having to wait every few minutes for NetVizor to
automatically send?
A: Yes! You can use the "Test Email Delivery" feature in the email delivery settings screen.

Q: Can I use an alternate port for SMTP - instead of the typical port 25?
A: Yes! Simply add ":port" to your hostname (ie: to use an alternate port.

Q: Do you have a private, anonymous, stealth email service that guarantees log delivery in a secure environment?
A: Yes! Our Stealth Email Service features guaranteed log delivery, with no traces of any kind being stored on our email servers. You can send/receive email in total security, as well as bypass any ISP's that block outside SMTP servers.
