3. After login successful, this is the main screen of BA. 

4.  You must configure BA the email server address that you are going to use in order to deliver Email. In Top Menu->Tools->Personal Options
  • The SMTP server is the host name or ip address of the email server that you are going to use. 
  • The User ID and Password are optional (depended on the SMTP server requirements)
  • The Sender Email and Sender Name will display on the Email that BA sent out.

5.      To run the BA, just click the Start Timer button, minimize it and BA will send email based on the predefined schedule to predefined email address. (The BA program must be opened and running all the time in order to make it work).

6.      To maintain the job including the schedule and the recipients, highlight the job and click Edit button.

7.      The Job Name and Description are free to edit
