Enter the address for the email's "From" field.
Enter the text for the email's subject line. If you have metadata
associated with your images, you can use metadata tags here.
You can insert a previously defined metadata tag by either using:
- The insert key
- A right mouse button click inside the control
- In Windows, the Context menu key, which is between the Windows key and Ctrl key
The inserted metadata tag will appear in green. To change a previously inserted metadata tag,
navigate the cursor to just before the tag and either:
- Use the up and down arrows to cycle through possible values.
- Right-click on the tag to display and select the available values.
For instance, if you have plate metadata,
you might use the line, "CellProfiler: processing plate " and insert the metadata tag
for the plate at the end. Please see the Metadata
module for more details on metadata collection and usage.

then SendEmail will send an email during processing of
the fourth, eighth, twelfth, etc. image cycles.

Your message can include metadata values. For instance,
if you group by plate and want to send an email after processing each
