Mass Emails are created in the WYSIWYG Editor and delivered to one or more Contact Groups. The message will be sent to each Contact separately and only once (even if they are members of multiple Groups).
To support anti-spam legislation, mass emails contain a link allowing a Contact to unsubscribe from future email distributions. For important notices to your customers, the unsubscribed setting can be overridden when sending the message.
Adhering to anti-spam legislation is your responsibility. Contravening anti-spam legislation may result in the suspension of ShoutCMS emailing services.
Messages are composed in the WYSIWYG Editor and can be saved and edited multiple times before they are sent:
Once you have finished composing your message, click "Save and Prepare to Send": On the next screen, you will have the option to either send a test message to an email address that you specify, or send the message to the Groups you have selected.
To send a test copy of the message, enter an email address into part A, then click "Send a Test EMail Now":
The test email is not sent from the same server as the regular mass email and will not include an unsubscribe link.
Once you are ready to send the message to your Contacts, ensure the settings are correct in part B, then click "Send Now":
A separate copy of the message will be sent to each Contact over the course of a few minutes or hours (depending on volume). They will not see each other's email address. You can keep an eye on how many people received, opened, or followed a link from your message by viewing the Mass Mail Reports.
