How to Customize Email Settings

Last Updated: Sep 19, 2017 01:09PM EDT
Email Settings allow you to add text and/or custom HTML to the Header (beginning of an email), Footer (end of an email), and to the content of New Member Emails. Using these advanced settings is a great way to add a custom flare and personality to your messages. Use the following steps to find and use your site’s Email Settings. 


Step 1

Go to Settings > Email Settings


Step 2

Default From Name: This is the name used for all message you send to your members. You can change the From Name for any email you send. 

Default Reply-to Address: This is the email address that will receive replies from your members. This is the Reply-to for AUTOMATED EMAILS ONLY!
When you send an email as a logged-in Admin, a Reply will go to the Admin who sent the email, not to the email in this setting. 


Step 3

Select whether you want to add text or HTML to your Header, Footer or New Member Email


Step 4

Type in your content and use the tools at the bottom if you want to preview or send a test email with your new header and footer. Once you're satisfied with your creation, click "Save Settings" to save your header and footer and start sending emails!


Step 5

Now that you have successfully created headers and footers, you may want to also make some custom email templates for those emails that you frequently find yourself sending out. For information on how to set those up, check out our help article here.
