Some versions ago we introduced a reporting mechanism for crashes within the checks and the GUI. It was possible to click on a "report crash" button which opened a "new mail" dialog containing the crash information. The problem with this approach was that when using Outlook it resulted in incomplete crash dumps which were mostly unusable.

The reporting mechanism has been completely reworked. The reports are now sent via HTTP POST calls to our crash reporting server. To be able to contact you in case of any question, we need your name and email address when you submit a crash report.

All information which is submitted to our servers is displayed to you before submitting. You can always choose not to report a crash.
