No auomatic email alert at IB?

    It continues to amaze me that IB still doesn't have an option to automatically email trade details whenever an order is filled. You can create an alert with $MESSAGE, but after the first fill, $MESSAGE gets replaced with the details from that fill, so you are emailed the same text every time, even if the fill is completely unrelated.

    Seems like such a simple feature to create an email whenever trade details are updated, with the updated details.

    Then again, I guess nothing at IB should amaze me.

    Anyone come up with any work-around to have trade details automatically emailed to you?
