I could be mistaken, but the way the post is worded, you seem to think that email and FTP are tied together. That's not what I interpret from the screenshots you provided.
Make sure that you can login to the FTP server with the information you provide to the DVR. Also make sure that the DVRBackup folder exists. And remember, FTP was created by UNIX folks, so case could matter.

Free SMTP servers are getting hard to find out there. It's just such an open avenue to spammers, that email providers who don't shut this down run the risk of getting blacklisted. Have you tried installing a free SMTP service onto the computer? I've never used one myself, but I've heard of others using [url=http://www.postcastserver.com/]PostCast[/url].

Good luck with that.
