Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Adding recipients to email notifier


This simply doesn't work.

I can add an email address, but if I try adding a provider, or editing options for existing provider the app hard crashes EVERY time.

This on a 27 inch iMac (2013) running el Capitan.

The result is that no recipients get added to the message generated in, and so the message does not get sent!

Assume that the 'provider' is to setup an email provider, but notarially clear on its purpose, if if it's even necessary... The fact that NO recipients are added to out going messages at the moment suggests it IS necessary, but would like some clarity

Re: Adding recipients to email notifier

Hi Rob,

I'm sorry it's misbehaving. But I'm not sure what you're referring to. Simon doesn't use the term "provider". Do you mean adding a new email transport? Where exactly does it crash? Have you submitted a crash report, mentioning what you were doing in the description, so I can find it?
