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).

SMS Notifier - edit the from addy?

Hi again,

How does Simon choose the From addy in the SMS notifier select menu? I would like to add accounts and seem to be overlooking the obvious.



Re: SMS Notifier - edit the from addy?

Forgive me... I'm an idiot. Simon runs on an internal server on my network. I only had one test account set up in Apple's Mail app. Of course it took me a solid 5 minutes to realize Simon looks for existing mail accounts in Mail for its outbound options. Hopefully my post will help someone else. Thanks David!

Next question will be: when will you release Simon for the iPhone? :)

I'm glad you figured it out. :)

Simon for iOS is actually in my plans... but not this year; too many other priorities.
