Communications Manager: Tips

  1. You can only send to 250 email addresses at one time.
  2. Make sure you test your email before you send it to your group of choice. You can do this by sending the message to your own email address.
  3. The messages created in the Communications manager are done so in HTML format. In order for those receiving your message to view it properly, they must have their mail client set to view HTML messages.
