You can connect your email address and send individual or group email messages from inside Boulevard without having to use a desktop client (Live Mail, Outlook, etc.). The benefit to using your email address inside of Boulevard is that it will send each email individually when using the group email function, you will also have the ability to send individual email, and a record of each email will be added to the recipient's Contact Log of their profile.
Connecting Your Email Address
- From the Edit menu, select Preferences (or from the main toolbar, click Preferences, then Email Settings).
- From the Online Sync tab, and under the Outgoing Email Settings section select Email (if necessary, click Settings).
- Enter your email address and the password associated with your email account in the Email and Password fields.
- If necessary, click then enter the SMTP settings from the table below for your specific email provider. View
- Enter the information you would like to appear at the bottom of each email in under the Signature tab (See Add a Default Signature to Email Messages for more information).
- Click Test to ensure the password and email address were entered correctly, and that the connection has been established.
