Contacts Welcome Email

Edit the "Contacts Welcome Email", which is sent to every new Contact that registers on your site. Contacts can sign-up several ways: They can buy a Product, complete an online Form or be added to the Contact database by a site administrator. Your site automatically sends a "welcome" message to any visitor than signs up. You can also send the message manually when you are modifying a Contact's profile.

The "From" address is the address that the email will appear to have been sent from. It does not have to be an address that you actually own, unless you want to be able to receive replies or you are concerned about SPAM filtering. To disable sending this message, leave the "From" address blank.

This message supports dynamic content through the use of Content Tags.

New Contact Notification

Edit the "New Contact Notification" email, which is sent to a given email address whenever a new Contact registers on your site. To disable sending this message, leave the "Sent to" address blank.
