    wprosser,

    Could you please clarify? I see nothing wrong with your code just from that little snippet other than it won't send an email to anyone unless you really have an email address of "[email protected]".

    What sort of issue is being reported when you compile the strategy, if any? Is this strategy just not placing orders?

    Please let me know if I may assist further.

      thanks. i think it has something to do with the mail setup (i used xxx to hide my email : )

      or i guess i need to input my server stuff under options?

      TIA

        wprosser,

        You just need to make sure that in the second field, it has a real email address.

        Suppose my email address is [email protected] and I want the Sendmail() to send to it. I would use the following Syntax :

        SendMail("[email protected]", "[email protected]", "Trade Alert", "Buy!!!");

            wprosser,

            It depends, perhaps your trading logic that tells your strategy to enter a long position never occurs, so a long position isn't generated which also won't trigger the SendMail() since its located in the same block of code.

            Or, the emails could be being sent and then your email server puts it in your spam folder or rejects it.

            Please let me know if I may assist further.
