Here are some of the benefits to using CorpNote to send your eCards, invitations and surveys:

Yes! We would be happy to create a set of custom eCards for you! From simple eCard designs to elaborate animated eCards with sound and interactivity, we have a variety of options to suit your budget. To begin the process, use our 'Contact Us' form or call us at 609-406-1665 M-F 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST.
Each eCard and invitation is sent to an individual email address and does not display other recipient's names or email addresses. We do not use CC or BCC in the eCard email.
Similarly, if you are sending invitations, the people you invite will not see the other people you have invited.
eCards and invitations are sent from our email server, using your email address as the ‘from’ and ‘reply to’ address. When you create an account, the email address you use to sign in is the email address that appears to your recipients in their email inbox. We also use the first and last name on the account as the sender name. In other words... [more...]
Each contact must have a first name, last name and a unique email address. You can also provide the following information: company, category (for example: customer, employee, etc.), start date, birthday, anniversary, and comments. We encourage you to provide as much information as possible, since additional fields make it easier for you to search for contacts and send ... [more...]
The start date field can be used for the date an employee started with your company or the date you and a customer first did business. This enables you to easily search for contacts when you want to send a customer or employee appreciation eCard, or to use our Recurring eCard feature to send regularly scheduled repeating eCards that commemorate the start date.
At the bottom of every eCard there is a link for the recipient to unsubscribe from your email list. Once they click the link and select to unsubscribe, CorpNote will automatically stop you from being able to send an eCard to this email address. This is very helpful when you have included an email address as part of a group or part of a recurring eCard series and don't want ... [more...]

By jumping back 10 years at a time, you can assign any date ... [more...]
You can import addresses from any program that lets you create a text or .CSV file with fields separated by commas.
Here are the basic steps:
Each member can have up to 2,500 email addresses in their address book; however, a recipient does not have to be in your address book for you to send them an eCard. When sending an eCard, you can type email addresses or select contacts from your address book. There are no limits to how many eCards you can send daily.
Follow these steps to add new contacts to an existing group in your address book:
Go to your address book and use the 'advance search' to search for the category that contains the contacts you want to delete. In the resulting page, click 'Select All' and then click the 'Delete Checked' button.
IMPORTANT: Once you delete a contact, they are permanently removed and cannot be retrieved again.
You can add contacts to your address book in two ways:
Macintosh's contact manager does not allow you to export your contacts in the file format compatible with CorpNote's address book. This is a "feature" of the Mac OS and is not under the scope of our technical support. However, our Mac users have reported success using third party applications which give you the ability to export contacts as a .csv file.
You can manually type or paste up to 250 email addresses (1 per line) for each eCard. In the address area, select "Type Email Addresses" and then paste or type your recipient's email addresses. Click the "Add Recipient(s) to Address List" button to save your changes and prepare your eCard for sending.

No matter how many separate eCards you send for an event, your guest list is automatically consolidated for you in your 'invitation list'. Use you invitation list to keep track of who has viewed and responded to your invitations.
