How to e-mail exercise data using PPP SW4
To send your exercises via
e-mail you can use all e-mail programs. With MAPI based e-mail
programs (e.g. Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express,
Netscape Communicator, Yahoo Messenger, Hotmail or Eudora) the
e-mail program is opened and the e-mail for sending the exercise
information is created automatically.
When using e-mail programs that do not
support MAPI e-mail system, for example Lotus Notes, the e-mail
must be created manually. The user should create a new e-mail and
attach the exercise data package automatically created by Polar
Precision Performance SW.
The exercises and the heart rate
