Default Sending Email from a strategy

Hi,

I'm trying to send an email from a strategy.
When I'm using the Tool>Option to send test email,l the email sent successfully.
When I try to send it from the code using
SendMail("myemail@mydomain.com", "myemail@mydomain.com", "Test", "Test");
Nothing is sent.

How can I fix it?

Tx in advance!

It works only in live. Not backtesting.

Thanks, Baruch. Yes, generally if the test email works than it does in code as well. SendMail will only work in real time so could be why you're not seeing it sent. If run on real time data, are there any errors messages in log tab of control center?

Thanks.
Is there a way to check it on backtesting data? because in the email I collect data from the strategy and send it so I would like to test it in advance?

SendMail() does not work in backtesting / historical but you can record this information in a few different ways. Easiest is just with Print() and it will write to Tools > Output Window. You can copy / paste from this window and manually email. More advanced would be writing to a file:
