Quick Start: Address an Email / Import Contacts

There are 3 ways to address emails in CorpNote...

Here are the 3 methods, from simplest, to most full-featured:

  1. Type/paste up to 250 email addresses directly (1 per line) and send your email. This is the fastest method.
  2. Individually select contacts from your CorpNote address book. Select up to 250 contacts per email. Requires that you've previously created/imported contacts into your address book.
  3. Send to an "Email List" of up to 2,500 contacts. Email Lists are groups of contacts that you have created in your CorpNote address book.

Sending using the Address Book or an Email List lets you personalize your email with your contact's first name, and lets you track your email pickup and history by contact name. Email addresses entered directly will track email pickup by email address only.
