Setup email

By integrating your email account you can send emails direct from ProspectSafari by simply clicking a contact’s email address. Within the send email popup you can then include shortcodes within the email body or alternatively select a template to send. You can also enrol the contact in a Sequence.

To integrate your email you simply need to setup the SMTP username and password in the Integrations menu. You can add different signatures to be used and manage your various “send as” email addresses. First select the Integrations menu:

Select the Integrations menu

Email Labels

ProspectSafari will regularly check the inbox and sent box of your connected email account.

Any and all emails to or from any contact in your ProspectSafari workspace will be copied and added to your ProspectSafari timeline. Older emails sent or received before your email was connected or the contact email was added will not appear in the timeline.

In addition, emails added to the timeline will also be tagged with a label in your email account so that you can filter your mailbox as you see fit.

Here you can define the labels that are to be used and the behaviour of your email account.
