Pitboss and Email Notifications

How does it work? When I set up my pitboss game, I filled out the SMTP server information, but can't seem to be getting any e-mails when my opponent finishes his turn. Am I missing something? Is there a setting that you have to enable? Thanks

It doesn't work if your SMTP server uses anything except port 25, and so the majority of commercial ISPs are out.

Check out the utilities on these forums called PBnotify and Civstats. They both offer solutions to the problem and are both easy to use.
