Mailing Designer Options Tab

The Options tab is where you'll set high-level properties for your mailing. There are three main subsections in the Options tab:

  • Mailing Properties (Name)
  • Targeting
  • Envelope

Mailing Properties (Name)

There are several options available in the Mailing Properties subsection.

Enter a Mailing Name. This is for your own organizational purpose, so subscribers won't this.

Click the Folder dropdown list to select a folder for your mailing design.

Click the Accounting Code dropdown list to select an accounting code for your mailing.

Tentative Send Date

A good way to stay organized is to set a tentative send date for each mailing. By doing so, everyone on your team will know "who's sending what, when" by simply taking a peek at the Informz calendar. If you have concerns about sending too many mailings, or if you need to keep oversight over other child accounts using Informz, this is an invaluable tool.

Click Tentative Send Date

A new window appears where you can select your tentative send date and time.

The From email address is displayed next to the "Friendly From." Some bounces and all out-of-office replies go to this address.

The Friendly From is the name that subscribers see in the "From" field.

NOTE: Both Subject Line fields are required. If you don't replace the default text when creating a mailing, the system will prompt you when you try to navigate away.

Options When You Need Them

You can set your mailing's options at any time in the mailing creation process. Just remember that you'll need to set at least one targeting option before you send!
