thumb_up Important Notes
If you want to set a 'recurring' automated email for anniversary or birthday, you will need to enter a birthday, anniversary or start date for your contacts. (Related Tutorial: Email Automation)
The start date field was designed to be used for employee start date or customer acquisition date. By entering a start date, you can easily set up customer or employee appreciation automated email campaigns.
To see Birthday, Anniversary and Start Date reminders for your contacts go to My Account > Overview and then click the dates tab. Click the button next to a contact to send an eCard or use an email template to celebrate their day.
Assigning a category to a contact makes it easier to create targeted email lists and quickly send an email to contacts within a specific category such as customers, prospects, subscribers etc.
Autofill names will be inserted exactly how you have them entered in your address book. If a contact's name or company name is written in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, that is how it will be inserted.
