SaleSmartz Manual  EMail 





SaleSmartz provides eMail integration so that you can send and receive eMails, and keep track of customer eMails. EMails can be automatically linked to contacts so that you can see your communication with a contact, at a glance, in the contact history. SaleSmartz uses its own eMail plugins, or external eMail applications to send and receive mail.

You can also use templates to send eMails to one or more contacts. Quotes and invoices can also be emailed to contacts using SZ Templates. (For more information on these, See chapter "SZ Template")



EMail templates


You can save an eMail as a template by selecting the "File" menu - "Save as" option. Save it into your "Merge templates" folder to use it as a merge template for contact merges.
You can also add default cc/bcc email addresses and even attachment files or embedded images.


EMail quote/invoice templates


Create a new SZ template and edit the template text. Then copy the template text and paste into an eMail. Save the eMail as a file in your "Templates" folder and it will appear in your quote/invoices template menu.


Private eMail accounts


You can set up personal eMail accounts in the Preferences - eMail accounts, and mark the option "Private account". All incoming and sent eMails for this account will appear in the "Private" folder which no other user can see. (See Section "EMail accounts", chapter "Preferences")


Auto address completion


Type a few letters of someones name or eMail address, click out of the address field and SaleSmartz will search for a matching address. It will insert the found address, or ask you to choose from a list of matching addresses when you click the send button


Out of office reply


Create an out of office eMail template, then you can set up an eMail rule to reply to all eMails with the template when you are on vacation. (See Section "EMail rules", chapter "Preferences")





New eMail is created by selecting "New" from the "File" menu, clicking on the new eMail button in the Tool Bar or a Contact Info window, or by mail merging with an eMail template


New eMail window


Basic new EMail window


The eMail window allows you to create and edit eMails and then send them to your contacts.


This button will send (or queue) eMails after you have completed them. You can save your eMails at any time and they will appear in the "Drafts" folder in the Mail Centre, until they are sent. If you have chosen the preference not to send immediately, this button will have the text "Queue" on it (See section "EMail", chapter "Preferences"). Clicking on "Queue" will save the eMail in the Mail Centre Outbox until the "Send & Receive" action is processed.

Attach files

With this button, you can attach one or more files to an eMail, so that they are sent with the mail. The list of attached files will appear in the bottom of the eMail window.


This field is used to enter the subject of the eMail


These buttons/fields can be used to enter the address of the recipients. The arrow icons to the right of these buttons allow you to choose an address from your shortlist. This shortlist can be the most commonly used eMail addresses and is changed by clicking on the button to the right of the eMail field in a contact window.


EMail destination address field


When you edit an address, the address editor window will appear over the eMail window. Several addresses can be added to an eMail, by clicking on the "Add more addresses" link, or by pasting from the clipboard.

Note: You can type names of contacts or partial addresses and SaleSmartz will find matches and automatically fill in the address.


The "From" popup menu allows you to choose the "From" address for your eMail. The list of these addresses is stored in the preferences (See Section "EMail accounts", chapter "Preferences")


The large field in the bottom of the eMail window is used to enter the text of the message. You can have a default signature appear here by default by setting the eMail accounts in the preferences (See Section "EMail accounts", chapter "Preferences")
Use the Font and Style menus at the top of your screen to format the text message.


Spell checker


You can use the built in spell checker for your emails. Windows users may need to install some extra software. Click here for more info.
Spell checking is automatic and any text that may be a spelling error will be hilighted in red. Right click on any text that is in error and you will be shown a menu of options to correct the text.

Received eMail window


When you receive an eMail, it will have additional buttons in the eMail window.


This button will copy the text of the message and create a new eMail to the sender. Each line of the copied message can have a prefix (e.g. > ) so that you can see the original text. This prefix is set in the preferences (See section "EMail", chapter "Preferences")

If you have set several eMail accounts in the preferences, the reply message will automatically have your "From" address set to the matching eMail account, and also any signtaure will be attached below the message.

this button functions in a similar way to the "Reply" button, but includes the addresses of all recipients in the new eMail.


This button will create a new eMail with the contents of the received mail, to allow you te send it to another recipient.

Make new contact

If the received eMail is not linked to a contact (i.e. the sender's address is not stored for any contact in your contact list), you can make a new contact from this eMail, by clicking on the "Make new contact" button. The address and any other name information stored in the eMail will be used to create the new contact.

Once you save the new contact, all eMails relating to this contact will be attached to the contact if you have the preference set to do so (See section "EMail", chapter "Preferences")
