Options of Send email Action

Choose message format (e.g. plain text, HTML, HTML with embedded resources or .EML); specify message encoding character set; set message priority flag and request email delivery and reading confirmation. Additional powerful features include sending separate email to each recipient specified in To field (without disclosing other recipients); and verifying whether all attachments and other necessary files are in place before sending.

Options propertiesDetails
Message formatChoose message format from the following options: Plain text, HTML, HTML with Embedded Resources and .EML file. Actual selection determines the treatment of message text provided in Email tab as well as enables / disables multiple parameters.
  • Plain text - message text is sent exactly as written / provided in Email text field. Disabled fields: Alternate text.
  • HTML - message text inside HTML tags is converted into hypertext before sending.
  • HTML with Embedded Resources - message text is converted into hypertext with embedding all pictures, style sheets and other necessary files (img, .js, .css). All image, style sheet and other tags have to refer to files stored locally or on network drive in order for these elements to be embedded into the email.
  • EML - message text is treated as EML file. All email parameters except From and To fields are taken from EML file and respective Send email Action input fields are disabled. Although it is necessary to provide From and To parameters, end recipient will see email sender and recipient as specified in EML file (even if actual sender and recipient differ).
Character setSelect among most popular message encoding character sets or enter necessary one, if not available on the list.
PrioritySet email priority flag (Not set, Low, Normal or High).
Request delivery confirmationAdds a flag to email message header that requests recipient's mail server to send a confirmation of email delivery.
Request reading confirmationAdds a flag to email message header that request recipient's email client to confirm that message has been opened by user. Depending on email client, it may confirm this automatically or ask user whether to send confirmation.
Send separate email to each recipient (as specified in TO field)Mark checkbox to send a separate email to each specified recipient. Message header of received email will contain only To address of actual recipient.
Fully prepare email message before connecting to the email serverMark checkbox to force Send email Action to verify availability of all attachments, and completely prepare message in RAM before sending. If any errors occur during preparation of message (e.g. attachment file not found or openable; necessary parameters not indicated or incompatible), it will not be sent. This setting may use more memory.
This Action is enabledAction is performed only if checkbox is enabled. Action can be disabled by removing the mark from This Action is enabled checkbox. When disabled, Send email Action will neither proceed with email sending nor process reports.
