If you call technical on this they direct you to try Yahoo, which also does not work with Amcrest anymore.
I'm getting about 40 emails per day from my cameras using Yahoo. When did it quit working?

All I have to say is Amcrest does not work with any email server, and I have several other brands that do. So if Amcrest tech advisers and on line forum administrators are going to lash out at customers that have continuing issues and these issues are not being handled in a timely manner, that is just not right and shows all the people that we can not have a voice or concerns with all the hardware we have purchased. I myself have spend over 2k in one system that I relied on the advertising and written directions in the owners guides that I downloaded prior to purchase to find out that some of these features will no longer work or never worked. And to answer the issue about annoying email notifications from James, I would agree somewhat,when it rains I turn off notifications in the app settings takes about 10 seconds. Also setting a very small area to monitor and setting the sensitivity down stops most of the false triggers. I have been setting these systems up ever since their inception, and the area motion settings are getting better, how ever, we need to switch to Passive IR Sensors and move away from IR Motion Sensor or Video Frame Motion Detection.

The New IP POE camera systems do not work on email servers, the older systems work still

I'm not real technical on these cameras, so I'm not arguing with you. What's considered "older systems"? All of my cameras were bought new in the last 4 months and they are all IP POE cameras and they all send email notifications via Yahoo daily.
