Send Mail

This window allows you to send email from Collect!

When you send mail using Collect!, it will attempt to use your Windows default email settings. These can be configured through Microsoft Outlook Express. Before you begin, ensure that your Outlook Express is properly set up and that you are able to send mail using it.

If you have already configured your mail settings, you may send mail by entering the recipient's email address in the 'To' field, the subject in the 'Subject' field, and the message body in the message text box.

Additional recipients may be specified in the 'CC' (Carbon Copy) field, with individual address separated by semi-colons.

You can send an attachment by selecting the file selection button to the right of the attachment field. Pick the file you wish to send from the Select File dialog.

To

This field contains the email address of the recipient.

Save Draft

If you are accessing the Send Mail form from the Debtor form, you may select the ' Save Draft' button to post the unfinished message to your WIP list as a contact.

The description of this contact will be the subject as you have entered it in the 'Subject' field, and the message text will be saved as an attachment. The CC and Attachment fields, however, will not be recorded. You will have to re-enter these if you wish to send attachments or send to carbon copy recipients.

Cancel

This button will close the Send Mail window. By selecting this button, you will lose your message if you have not already saved it as a draft using the 'Save Draft' button.

Load Draft
