Why would there be "From" and "To", I just want an email to myself? How do I find my outgoing mail server and port for say gmail or yahoo? Any help would be appreciated.

All emails require a 'from' and a 'to' be sent through a e-mail server. The 'from' should be a valid email address, you can use an existing account or create a new one such as 'AlertsFromMyCamera@gmail.com'.

The smtp server for Gmail is 'smtp.gmail.com' and for Yahoo is 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com'. We have an article that explains how to configure alert emails with photos here:
