Having set the basic properties of the mail account, proceed to the Mail Options tab to configure outgoing email should be handled. If the server has only been enabled to utilize the mail server as an input, the Mail Options tab will not be available.

Recipients: Choose where the recipients' addresses should be obtained. You can either have Connect extract email addresses from a specific XMP field or create a distribution list with fixed email addresses where you manually enter the email address of each recipient.

If you choose to extract the email address from an XMP field, you have a fallback option if the field is missing a valid email address. In that case, enable Use fixed recipients address if missing and add any number of backup recipients to the list.

Connect will send one email per file, and you can choose whether all recipients should be listed in the To field in the email header, or if each recipient should receive a separate message. Your last option is to hide recipients by placing them in the Blind Copy (BCC) field in the email header.

E-Mail content: If you would like a custom email subject and message body you can type that in here.

A note about email channels with multiple destinations:
If a file transfer fails in one or more of the destinations in a channel, the file may be sent several times to any e-mail destination configured in the channel.
