ccScreenSpy Update

I received a number of questions on how to configure ccScreenSpy so that the screen captures are not emailed, but are simply saved to disk.

The configuration change is actually quite simple – simply do not specify SMTP server in the configuration (ccss.exe.config).

Under the hood, the thread responsible for sending the email would throw an exception but it would get caught.. Well, I thought this was a little dirty, so I updated the code to actually check for the presence of these settings, and if they do not exist, the application will not even attempt to send an email.

Another request that has come up was to allow emails over SSL (like GMail). I added a new setting to the email configuration called “use_ssl”. Set it to ‘True’, if your SMTP server expects communication over SSL.

Hope that’s useful. Update is available¬†here.
