    Is there a secure and easy way to get alerts from the Profilux? I don't feel comfortable entering my email password into the Profilux. I have 3.1.

    You could make another email name and forward those to your email you use. Or you can send texts to your phone, but would obviously have to enter your phone number.

    You could always create a free gmail account, dedicated for just that, and send via that account.

    I have a Gmail account already and they only allow one. But, is the solution a dedicated email account? Will any email service work?

    I have a couple gmail accounts myself. Is it giving you trouble, or saying you can't do so?

    I think some guys have used yahoo? Not 100% sure, but there should be some others that work. Still, you should be able to create another gmail account.

    I have set up a few Gmail accounts. Not run into anything suggesting a limit.

    You need to enter an email account, and server, to send the email alerts from.
    Which email account, if your main account, or a dedicated one, is up to you. The email service you use needs to allow SMTP connectivity though. Mind you, the P3 does not support TLS/SSL on it's on, would have to use the GHL Servers for that.

    If using Gmail - just make sure to enable "less secure apps"

    The new Connect app works very well - any plans to include a alarm function (with signal or sms) through the app?

    I use it with port forward to my p4 in my home but as it now - its limited to one port (by default) in one network
    I have 4 other installations (P3.1) inside one private network - it would be a pleasure to reach all four through port forwarding

    Sincerely Lasse

    So, setup a Yahoo email just for this, but it's not working. Has anyone gotten a Yahoo account to work?

    I know for certain people have used Yahoo for email alerts. GHL actually suggests Yahoo or microsoft email as ones that work. It took me a while to figure it out on my profilux. Have you tried to email support? Hopefully someone will see this that knows how to setup yahoo

    Yeah, I still can't get Yahoo to work. I don't see anything promising in the email settings to change.

    I'm not a yahoo user, however it appears that Yahoo only allows TLS/SSL connections to send email. If so, then the PL3 will not send natively, without enabling to send it through the GHL servers.
