SMTPit Pro

Next Generation Email plug-in




Use this function to show a status window that displays information about what the plug-in is currently doing. When you are sending an email, the status window will show you what part of the email it is currently sending as well as a progress bar indicating how much of that part it has completed. Default placement of the status window is the center of the screen.

If you want to specify a starting location for the status window, specify the coordinates of the left and top of the dialog in pixels. If you wanted to display it in the top right hand corner of your screen, and your screen resolution is set to 800x600, you could specify left as “700” and top as “100”. If you specify a negative one (“–1”) as either the x (across) or y (down) coordinates, the status window will be centered on that axis. For instance, if you want to display it on the bottom of your screen in the center, you would specify left as “–1” and top as “600”; or in the center of the screen by specifying left as “–1” and top as “–1”.
