The Followmail is the tool to create and send your messages, newsletters, promotions, advertisements from the Collabox!

It includes an email editor, but also a distribution list wizard that will search your contacts directly in the database. It also offers a mailing manager to plan your campaigns.
No more multiple lists and software, Collabox is all-in-one!
How Followmail works
To access the Followmail function, you must first click on “Contacts” in the navigation menu at the top of the page.
Next, create a distribution list. This list will include all the recipients of your message. These must absolutely be part of your Collabox contacts.
To create a new distribution list, first click on “Distribution List” in the left side menu.
Then select “Add a distribution list”.
Find a name for your list and then click on the “Add Contacts” tab.
Then, You will then see a list of all the contacts associated with you. Select the ones you want to add to the distribution list. Click on “save”.
Once the distribution list has been created, you must prepare the content of your communication. To do this, click on “Messages” in the left sidebar.
Here you will find all the messages you have written. To create a new one, click on “Add message”.
This is where we let the imagination run wild. Followmail includes a free message editor. Once the message is composed, don’t forget to save. * From experience, we suggest that you write your messages in a text editor like Word. You will only have to copy and paste your message and adjust the layout. Tell yourself that it takes less time to proceed in this way than to start all over *.
Sending the message
Now that your message and your distribution list are complete, we can now plan the sending. To get there, click on “Shipments” in the left sidebar. You will be automatically redirected to the page containing all the shipments you have made. To create a new one, click on “Add shipment”.
Find a title for your sending, choose the sending date and the message to send. Finally, select the name of the distribution list you want from the list at the bottom. Finally, click on “Save”.
Once the message is sent, in the right column you will see the mention “Sent” as status.
