Send a Mass Email

Updated 2 years ago by Celina Kwan

You can send mass emails from the main lists in the Address Book, Opportunities, Customer Service,and Hotlist pages. If you send the email message from the Address Book page, the message is sent to the selected Address Book entries. If you send the email message from another page, the email message is sent to the Address Book entries associated with the selected entries.

When sending an email in Maximizer you can ensure that a copy of the email appears in your email application by choosing to automatically send a carbon copy (CC) of the email to yourself.

If you frequently send mass emails, we recommend creating a favorite list to easily retrieve your regular recipients each time.

You can also select a list of entries from the Address Book

When sending large mass emails (500+), it is best to send them in smaller groups to avoid errors.
