Email content


The email address the report will be sent to.


The subject of the email. Supports environment variables such as %DATE%, %TIME% or %USERNAME%.


Choose an email format here.


Use MAPI client

If this setting is checked, TreeSize will use the local MAPI client (for example Microsoft Outlook) for sending mails.

Use SMTP server

TreeSize will use the specified SMTP server to send email reports. Please make sure to test the connection settings before applying the current options.
Please note that you will have to enter valid SMTP settings in order to make use of email reports in scheduled scan or search tasks or all other kinds of automated starts (e.g. batch programs or command line calls) (Professional Edition only).


The email address that will be shown as the sender of the report.


The name (DNS) or IP address of the machine hosting the SMTP service through which messages are to be sent.


The port on which the SMTP service specified in the "Server" field is listening for connections.

Use secure (SSL) connection

Indicates that Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) should be used when sending messages via SMTP.

This server requires authentication

Select this option if SMTP service specified by the Server field requires authentication. Passwords will be encrypted before storing them in the TreeSize settings file.

Test Connection

Test the SMTP connection settings. This will send a test email to the email address specified in the "To" field.

Email body

Include results in mail body

Results will be added to the body of the email. NOTE: For very bigger reports, this can lead to very large mails, which can take a very long time to open in mail clients, or even exceed mail server limitations.

Attach a report with the results

Adds the result report as attachment to the email. This fixes the problem of very large emails that can occur with the other option.

Exported lists

Active list / all lists

Select which search result lists shall be included in the email : only the currently active search types or all search types.

Exported elements

Checked items / all items in the list

Select here, if you want to have just the checked/marked result list entries or all entries from the result list included in the email report.
