Default Configure Email SMTP in NT 8

I feel dumb but guys I can't find the setup anywhere. Haven't found a thread yet either that addresses it. I see share services in a thread here but have no idea where that is ...
I need to configure the outgoing server to accomodate indicators which offer the notification option.
Also, do I have to use a pre-validated service like gmail or yahoo, or can I configure my own exchange server [Godaddy] for this?

Thanx !

You can access share services in NinjaTrader 8 by going to the Control Center > Tools > Options > General > Share Services. Here is the relevant Help Guide page:


Popular email setups are covered in this forum post:


Provided that you have all the necessary information and ensured that nothing on your own exchange would be blocking the process, the share service should work with your own email exchange.

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.

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.
