Receive Email: Critical Points in ANSYS® Run

Download: Documentation (.pdf) & Extension (.wbex)

This article is related to (automates) the ANSYS Tips & Tricks article: Receive Email or Text: Critical Points in ANSYS® Run

Since in Mechanical this ability is done by inserting a snippet command, it can be easily replaced by an ACT extension.  The goal of the extension is to send out an email with information from the solve.out file (i.e. the solution information) once the solver has finished, which does not necessarily mean that the solution is done.  In the case of non-convergence for a non-linear analysis for instance, you would receive an email as soon as the solver has finished running.

Email in ANSYS Run: How does it work?

The first three steps are the same as those described in Receive Email or Text: Critical Points in ANSYS® Run. 

You have to:

  • Add directory to system path for emailer
  • Install email program
  • Test email program as stand-alone

Then, once the extension is installed and activated in the project (everything is done from the project page menu ‘Extension’), the following icon should appear within the mechanical Toolbar:

ACT Email 1

By clicking on the icon, it will add the following object in the Environment branch (as if it was a load or a boundary condition):


ACT Email 2

In the details view of the object, you simply have to specify the email address you want the solve.out to be sent to:


ACT Email 3

Once the run is terminated, you will have an email containing the solve.out:


ACT Email 4

Here the emailing is set up in such a way that the sender is the same as the recipient address.
