Nova can send a copy of its map via e-mail.  This is useful if you want to illustrate the configuration of satellites to someone else or to plan for an upcoming pass.  You can also add some explanatory text to accompany the e-mail.

TO: sets the e-mail address of the person who will receive the message

From: is your e-mail address

Subject is whatever you want it to be.

Image file type selects the type of compression, if any, to be used.

Outgoing SMTP server:  This is very important and many users have trouble with it.  To find the information necessary for these two entries, you can look in your current e-mail program's configuration or contact your Internet Service Provider.

It is a good idea to test your settings by sending e-mail to yourself.  Nova retains your entries so you do not have to re-enter them every session.
