What is it?
This is a Windows Desktop Application that you can use to monitor a gmail account 24 x 7 for MMREM email notifications.
This is the fastest way to react to the MMREM emails to maximize your chance of accepting the next assignment.
How does it work?
1. Configure a gmail account (free from Google) to receive the email notifications that MMREM sends to you. Make sure that this gmail account has IMAP and POP3 enabled. We strongly recommend that this email account should be dedicated to this purpose. Do not use this for your day to day email activity.
2. Install eMMREM and configure it to monitor your account. You can run this program 24 x 7 checking your gmail account every second for new mail.
3. When a notification arrives, the program will click on the link in email and display the page in the integrated Internet Explorer browser window. At the same time it will sound an alert (configurable). If the program is minimized, or hidden behind other windows on your desktop, it will bring it to the front and give it focus.
4. You now enter the captcha code, and if the code is correct and you’ve been fast enough, you will see the confirmation message.
One time fee of $150.00. This will provide you with lifetime updates.
A trial is available. Contact Orderscout for details.
What do you need?
1. Gmail account.
This is available free from Google. Make sure that the MMREM email notifications are sent to this gmail account.
2. Windows Computer.
Operating System – Any version of Windows (XP, Vista or 7) should work but be aware that we no longer test on any version older than 7 which is the current release.
Hardware – Faster is always better, but any newish computer, say two or three years old would be more that adequate.
We recommend that you use a dedicated computer for this. You can run the program on a work computer, it can be left running minimized, while you work on other programs. If an offer is detected, the program will sound an alarm and bring itself into focus. This may cause a momentary disruption of the tasks that were being executed when this happened.
3. Internet Access.
Again, faster is always better. If you can, used a wired network. Test your network speed at http://speedtest.net.
“I have a gmail account already. Can I use this as the monitoring gmail account?”
You can, but your access to this account may interfere with the monitoring process. You will be better served to use a separate gmail account that the monitoring program has exclusive access to.
“Can I forward emails from my main email account to this new monitoring gmail account?”
Yes, this is possible.
However this will add an additional delay to the time it takes for the notification to be seen by the monitor. Depending on the quality of your forward process, this time may be negligible or significant, and in some cases potentially dangerous.
For instance, if you are using email clients like Outlook or Thunderbird with rules to do the forwarding, then they must be running when the notification arrives. If they are not running, the email notification will not be forwarded until you start the email client again.
The recommendation is to send the notifications directly to your dedicated gmail account.
“You say to use a dedicated gmail account but I also need to see the emails being sent to that account.”
Not a problem.
Configure the gmail account to automatically forward all incoming emails to your working email account. This way you still get all email sent to the dedicated gmail account but do not need to connect to it with a client or web browser.
“I need to access the monitoring gmail account. Can I do this?”
Again not a problem.
You can access the email account directly at any time if you need to. However, limit this to those times when you need to do this rather than accessing the account on a regular basis. This will avoid or at least minimize interference with the monitoring process.
For instance, do not configure your email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc) to connect to the gmail account on a permanent basis as this will result in .
If you configure the account to forward all messages to your working email account, you get all emails automatically as soon as they are sent.
The program log shows errors when I start monitoring.
The first time you run the program the initialization will often report errors. Close the program and restart the program. If every thing is configured correctly, you should see the monitoring working correctly.
Check that you have IMAP enabled for the gmail account. Log in to the gmail account and go to Settings / Forwarding and IMAP POP3. Check that IMAP and POP3 are both enabled.
If the errors are still present, check your gmail account configuration again. If all else fails, contact Orderscout for support.
“Everything was working fine and I now suddenly get errors in the log file. What happened?”
1. Check that your password is correct. It may have been changed and you forgot to update the program’s configuration.
2. Google is not perfect. They do sometimes have connection failures. Not often, but it happens. If you are sure that everything is correct, wait a few minutes and then try again.
“I can’t find the messages in my monitoring gmail account?”
The program does not delete any emails. Once it has processed an email, it will move the message to a label called “processed” to avoid having to process messages more than once. If you use the Google gmail web client, click on this label and you will find all the messages that the account has received since starting to run the monitoring program.
“What happens if I stop the monitoring program?”
Not a problem…
You can safely stop the monitoring program if you are away or unable to accept offers for some reason. The emails that arrive while the monitoring program is not running will accumulate in the gmail inbox.
When you restart the monitoring program, the program will process all messages in the inbox. If any message is more than 2 minutes old, it will be ignore and moved directly to the processed folder (gmail label).
If the program has not been running for a long period a large number of emails may have accumulated. The program will first empty the inbox before it starts normal operation. This may take several minutes, depending on the number of messages queued.
“Can I install the program on more than one computer?”
Yes. But realize that you should only be running one of them at any one time. There is only one gmail account and having multiple programs trying to process the same account will result in them interfering with each other.
“Can I run multiple instances of the program to improve my success rate?”
You can run multiple instances of the program.
Doing so is pointless as they will all need to connect to the same gmail account. Multiple clients all connecting to the same account may end up interfering with each other.
“How do I get the latest update?”
Check the website http://orderscout.net/mmdownloads/ from time to time to see whether a new update is available. You will need a userid and password to access the webpage. If you do not have this, please contact Orderscout.
“I don’t want to use gmail for my notifications. Can I use my normal email account?”
Yes, this is possible, but not recommended.
Either, the monitoring will be impacted by your day to day email activity, or it will affect you.
Either configure a forwarding rule to send the notification on to a dedicated email account that can be used exclusively by eMMREM or else set up a rule to forward all email from the eMMREM account to your working account.
