CC emails

From the Email settings screen, you can control various email settings, including the ability to automatically copy email messages to your contacts' secondary or alternate email addresses.

For new accounts, you can also control whether emailing is disabled while you set up your Wild Apricot account. 

To display the Email settings screen, hover over the Emails menu and click the Settings option.

The following options are available from this screen.

Enable emailing

When you create a new account with Wild Apricot, most emails are initially disabled, so that contacts don't receive emails while you set up your account. 

No emails – except the Password for new contacts, Forgot password and New administrator emails – will be sent to your contacts. Instead, they will be routed to your organization contact's email address, as specified on your Organization details screen. All manual emails will also be routed to your organization contact. 

While emailing is disabled, the emails that would have been sent are still recorded in your email log, allowing you to test and confirm your email setup. Test emails recorded in your email log but not sent to the selected recipients have the phrase [Test mode] added to their subject lines.

Once you are ready to enable emailing, you can click the Enable emailing button within your email settings.

Once you enable emailing, you cannot disable it again.

After you click the Enable emailing button, you'll be asked to confirm by clicking the Enable button on the warning screen that appears.

CC emails

With one or more custom fields set up to store secondary or alternate email addresses, you can enable the automatic copying of emails to 3 of these addresses. Copies of all automatic emails and manual email blasts will be sent to each of the secondary email addresses you enable.

To enable the automatic copying of emails to secondary addresses, enable the Automatically copy all messages to contacts’ secondary emails option within your email settings. 

With this option enabled, you can click the field under Email source to select a custom field used to store secondary email addresses. Only text fields will be displayed.

For instructions on setting up custom fields to store secondary or alternate email addresses, click here.

To select an additional alternate email field, click Add field

Once you are finished adjusting your email settings, click the Save button at the top right corner of the screen.
