    •   Bulk Email Messages using TouchBase
    If you are using the Easy Editor in our TouchBase bulk email product, you may find these topics useful in setting up your messages:

  • Attaching Documents: For multiple reasons, we recommend against attaching any documents to bulk email messages. Instead, we do recommend uploading the document to your file library, then inserting a link to that document into the email message using the EasyEditor.
  • Creating Hyperlinks: When including hyperlinks in your message, the "http://" must be included in the URL to allow the maximum amount of recipients to be able to click the link directly from the message. This can be accomplished by copying the URL directly from your browser's address bar, then pasting either 1) directly in the message, or 2) directly into the URL field of the Insert Hyperlink window.
  • Inserting a Tracking Image: Inserting a tracking image into your message is encouraged. Using a tracking image in your message enables the message to be tracked so you know who has or has not read your message. But be advised, some email clients will disable images so recipients can't view them until they choose to allow the images to be displayed. The bulk email system will only count the message as Read if a recipient chooses to enable/download this image. To insert a tracking image in your message use the Insert Tracking Image tool .
  • Personalizing Messages: To personalize your message to the recipients from your list, you may insert ~UserName~ in your greeting. To insert a user name, use the Insert User Recipients Name tool . So your introduction would look like this: Dear ~UserName~,
    Upon receipt, the ~UserName~ would be replaced by the recipients name from your mailing list.
  • Automatic List Removal (Opt Out): In order to be compliant with spam regulations, you are incouraged to include a link for recipients to removed from future mailings. To insert this link, use the Insert Link for Automatic List Removal tool . The recipient's name will be removed from any future lists you upload. Opt Out lists can be managed in TouchBase under List Management.
  • Adding a Signature: You may create a signature block under Message Management, Edit Signature Block. To insert this signature block into your message, use the Insert Signature Block tool .

    •   Check Spelling
    Unfortunately at this time, the EasyEditor is not equipped with a spell checker. Please look for this new upgrade in the near future.

    •   Clear Formatting in the Document
    Sometimes you may find information that was pasted in from another program is not formatting as you expected in the EasyEditor. To clear formatting that was present in the content’s original software, choose the Clean HTML icon to remove all HTML tags, Word-specific mark up, style sheets, <font> and <span> tags. A majority of the time, this makes imported content much more responsive to the tools in EasyEdit.
