I want to setup email notifications in BAMT. I currently use GMAIL. But I suppose your password is sent clear text when you use this option am I correct? Is there a secure way to use it or should I setup another email solely for this purpose. THANKS

To send emails, you don't need your account password.  Unless of course your ISP server requires it via ESMTP
extensions.  Most larger ISPs accept incoming emails then they sort them out.  If any software/script ask you for your email password, you better run for cover :-)

To receive emails, well, you have options. Some are more secure than others.

Just make sure you use SSL or TLS. Then it connects securely just like any other mail client would.

These instructions are for POP, too, but the SMTP part is what matters for what you are doing.
