Send Email


Table of Contents

The send email is an integrated function designed to simplify tasks such as sending out mass electronic statements, forwarding documents such as invoices to customers and sending personalized bulk mail for promotions and notifications.

Server Connection

Set the connection parameter provided by your SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) provider. Choose the provider that best serves your business. Follow your providers recommended settings. Quasar will save these settings on the user's computer to save you having to enter them each time you wish to send an email.

Select Recipients

For regular email you can select your recipients using Quasar's standard lookup functions. These include customer, vendor, employee and personal. When you make a selection and press "Return" Quasar will prompt you to choose ether a "To" recipient or a "Cc" recipient. You can add any combination of recpient types to either the "To" or the "Cc" field. Alternatively you can add recipients manually by separating each recipient with a comma.

Personalized Mass Mail

Used to send mass mail to multiple customers in your database. This can be used as a promotion tool or as an electronic notification.>/p>

Send Cc

Enter the copied email addresses manually or use the lookup functions to create a list of addresses.
