Standalone E-mail Robot

The Standalone E-mail Robot is a free-standing tool which runs in the background delivering messages. You don't have to use the Standalone E-mail Robot: you can send messages using the E-mail Robot (SMTP) or E-mail Robot (MAPI), and you can send SMS/text messages using the SMS/text message robot. But using the Standalone E-mail Robot means that all of your messages get sent out right away, and you don't need to worry about running any of the robots to send them manually.

The Standalone E-mail Robot can be installed as a Windows service.



  1. Configure the Standalone E-mail Robot settings with the same tools in VSys that you use for configuring the E-mail Robot (SMTP) and the SMS Robot.
  2. Place the Standalone E-mail Robot executable (VSysOneEmailRobot.exe) in the same folder as VSys.exe and VSys.ini, or have a configured copy of VSys.ini in the folder with VSysOneEmailRobot.exe. The Standalone E-mail Robot gets its database configuration settings from the VSys.ini file.
  3. Launch VSysOneEmailRobot.exe

  5. Optionally monitor and control the Standalone E-mail Robot from the Standalone E-mail Robot Monitor tool.

The Standalone E-mail Robot will not attempt to deliver any messages more than thirty days old. This is intended to prevent its accidental delivery of very old messages when the Standalone E-mail Robot is started. The regular SMTP and MAPI E-mail Robots will happily deliver old messages since they show you those messages on-screen before delivery.
