Setting up my CCTV - can anyone help me please?

Can anyone help me please.  I have been trying for weeks to set up my CCTV systems ability to send activation e-maisl to my work e-mail account (or any account really)  with no success.
The system is a Y-cam and if anyone is feeling helpful the instructions on their literature is here, its section 6.42
http://www.y-cam.com/docs/Manual-Y-cam-Black-SD-Knight-SD-White-SD-&-Bullet-EN-v4.16.pdf
So how would I put my plus net details into there to allow it to send me e-mails via my PN account?

The standard way is to put
relay.plus.net as the SMTP server
Port 25 should be OK
Secure SSL - No
Authentication - No
Username - isn't necessary as you aren't asking for authentication
Sender email address - whichever you want to use of your normal mailboxes
This assumes you are sending it via a Plusnet connection

You could try using authentication. That requires
Secure SSL connection remains set to "No"
Authentication set to "Yes"
User name set to your account name (the one used to login to the Member Centre)
Password set to the password that goes with that User name
Re-type password obviously a repeat of that
The other entries as before.

Have you setup the DNS entries in the camera?
