Do we have an email modul?

Post by Kogeweather » Sun 09 Oct 2011 6:34 pm

Dear forum. I have been searching the forum, so forgive me if it's already here, but I'm looking for a way to forward an email every 10 minute containing a list of parameters (max/min temp, max/min rainfall etc) to our national weather service. I know some people use software like virtual weather station (internet version) etc. to do this, but I'm fund of Cumulus and don't want to change.

I have looked at the toolbox, but it seem not to be an option, so the question is - do we have an email modul or is someone working on something like this.

Don't they have a facility to either read a 'web' file or have a specific 'upload' area where you send a file in the format they want ?

Both of these are easy to do via Cumulus and is the way most data 'gatherers' work.

eg. CWOP, APRS, Wunderground, WOW, etc. etc.

Thanks. I assume you are right and I assume it's the index.htm file you mean. The problem is to find an email program which automatically can attach the file and send an email every 10 minute. Any suggestions.

When you mentioned 'our national weather service' were you writing about the 'Nordic Weather Network' or another weather network?

Sorry for the confusion. It was the Danish meteorological institute I meant - I didn't pinpoint this. They have a national service where people like us I upload data. There's a link here http://www.dmi.dk/dmi/index/danmark/bor ... =undefined. It's in Danish but this is the service where I want my station to be present.

I have meanwhile got data from them and it seem quite straight forward to upload data to their server. I'm currently in the work of setting up a script to convert the data into something their system can recognized.

Thank you all for the interest.

Dear Kogeweather:

Maybe this tool will be useful for you:
http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/

You should create a file containing the variables that you need to report to your local weather service in the required format and have them processed by Cumulus (but untick the FTP? option!), then use the "SendMail" app to mail it as you need.

Hope this helps,



Only needs to setup some task scheduler to run the "SendMail" app

Cumulus can run an external program once every realtime or web update interval, or once a day at daily rollover.

Hej Jan.

have you finished your script and would you like to share it? I´m interested in uploading my data to borgervejr.

Although I do not use it with Cumulus, I have had great success with Blat....it's a command line email tool. You do need a snmp service to use it...I use it to grab an excel file and send it off to half dozen users ever morning. It can be used to attach pretty much any type of file, short of an executable
I just created a task to run a simple batch file which sends the email. Check out the use page here: http://www.blat.net/
Hope this helps
