Default Sending Email from a strategy

Hi,

I'm trying to send an email from a strategy.
When I'm using the Tool>Option to send test email,l the email sent successfully.
When I try to send it from the code using
SendMail("myemail@mydomain.com", "myemail@mydomain.com", "Test", "Test");
Nothing is sent.

How can I fix it?

Tx in advance!

It works only in live. Not backtesting.

Thanks, Baruch. Yes, generally if the test email works than it does in code as well. SendMail will only work in real time so could be why you're not seeing it sent. If run on real time data, are there any errors messages in log tab of control center?

Thanks.
Is there a way to check it on backtesting data? because in the email I collect data from the strategy and send it so I would like to test it in advance?

SendMail() does not work in backtesting / historical but you can record this information in a few different ways. Easiest is just with Print() and it will write to Tools > Output Window. You can copy / paste from this window and manually email. More advanced would be writing to a file:

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
