About E-Mail

In today's business world, e-mail is the preferred method of communication. ManageMore has incorporated e-mail functionality, woven right into our Customer Relationship Management and other business features. The program allows you to send and receive e-mail to and from customers, employees, vendors, personal and business contacts. You can also send customizable bulk e-mail to many recipients at one time for marketing, collections, or communication purposes. This topic will help you set up ManageMore's e-mail features.

E-Mail Basics

Internal E-Mail refers to e-mail sent from one employee to another from within ManageMore. This type of e-mail requires no email accounts, since internal e-mail does not use the internet. To allow an employee to receive internal mail, simply choose the option present on the employee screen.

E-Mail Pro is the underlying engine that drives many of the e-mail features of ManageMore. With E-Mail Pro, you will be able to utilize all of ManageMore's e-mail functionality, including internal e-mail, e-mail templates, receiving e-mail, and bulk e-mail. Without E-Mail Pro, you will only be able to send single external e-mail. If your license did not include E-Mail Pro, and you wish to add these features, please contact your sales representative.

External E-Mail refers to e-mail sent from within ManageMore to external recipients, and from external senders to internal recipients. This type of e-mail requires email accounts to be setup. To allow an employee to receive external mail, you must assign e-mail address(es) to the employee.

E-Mail Accounts are used to define the settings necessary to send and receive internet (external) e-mail. These settings (see Figure 3-8) are provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and tell ManageMore to what mail server(s) it will connect to send and receive external mail. An e-mail account also contains the user name and password needed to access the mail server.

E-Mail Addresses are used to identify e-mail which is received from external sources and route it to the proper employee. By default, an e-mail account has just one e-mail address. Some Internet Service Providers, however, allow more than one e-mail address for your account (often called alias e-mail addresses). You can add these additional addresses to the e-mail account. E-mail addresses are assigned to employees, and mail segregation and delivery is handled automatically by ManageMore. E-Mail addresses can also be shared among several employees (see Figure 3-9), for messages that can be handled by more than one person.

Figure 3-7.   E-Mail Account Screen

To set up e-mail accounts in ManageMore, you must select Setup ... Options, and choose the E-Mail section. First check the option to Allow sending/receiving of external mail, then select the E-Mail Accounts tab to add, edit or remove accounts.

Employee E-Mail Setup

Once you have set up your e-mail accounts and addresses, you can setup which employees will be able to use them. This section will explain how to set up employees' e-mail capabilities. To set the e-mail capabilities for a particular employee, select Lists ... Human Resources ... Employees, and Edit the employee you desire. On the employee screen, you will notice an E-Mail Tab (see Figure 3-10). The fields on this tab are explained below.

infoIn order for an employee to be assigned e-mail settings, the employee must also be a system User, set up in the Security Administrator. This way ManageMore can send/receive/display the proper e-mail, based upon the user logged into the system.

An employee will be able to either send only, send and receive, or nothing. The first account assigned to an employee with send capabilities will be used for that employee's sending account.

Account Properties
Click this button to change the ability to receive e-mail from this account. Once you click on this, the e-mail account setup will come up. Your only available option is at the bottom: a check box that, when selected, allows the employee to receive e-mail through this account.

Q & A - E-Mail Setup

Q01.Can I use the program to check my America Online e-mail account(s)? What about Hotmail, or other Web-based mail (e.g. Yahoo Mail, etc.)?  
A01.America Online (AOL) uses proprietary e-mail technology, and it cannot be integrated into other programs. Hotmail and Yahoo can be used as long as you have signed up for POP access with them. The best solution would be to sign up for a standard (POP) e-mail account with your ISP.  

Q02.   How can I set up an account that is used for sending mail only?
A02.Just complete the Outgoing Mail Server settings (see Figure 3-9), and leave the Incoming Mail Server settings blank.  

Q03.Can I setup e-mail for internal use only?  
A03.Yes. Simply follow the instructions in this topic, but do not follow those that apply to external e-mail. Leave the option to turn on external e-mail off.  
Q04.Can I enter personal e-mail contacts without entering them as customer into the program?  
A04.Yes. Simply create a new e-mail and click on the To:, Cc:, or Bcc: buttons. Then change the Show Names From to Personal. Then click on the New Personal Contact button at the bottom left of the window.  
Q05.Where can I get my SMTP and/or POP server name?  
A05.Contact your ISP for the SMTP/POP server name you should use.  
Q06.Can I still use this feature if I have my own mail server?  
A06.Yes. You can use the e-mail functionality within ManageMore if you have your own e-mail server. Simply specify the address(es) / name(s) of your servers in the server name field(s).  

Q07.   I don't see my question here. Where else can I get information?
