User Settings - E-Mail method & Address format
|Top Previous Next|
Two basic E-Mail methods
Choose between two possible methods to run your e-mail communication in TOM:
Pressing Shift while clicking Send (in the mailing process) toggles to the opposite method.
Mailing options when using External Mailer
Both mailing methods draw on the text templates you can define in >User settings >Forms >E-Mail.
Defining templates for address formats
The flexible address formats in TOM enable you to create addresses that can be used in many countries. E.g., the position of Post/ZIP codes in addresses may vary, or the contact person within a company comes first place in anglo-american usage, while in Germany is placed after the company.
2 default templates can be defined as default formats. These can be copied to specific client, translator and contact records with just one mouse click (and can be further modified there if needed).
The formatting is done using placeholders (wildcards): terms starting and ending with "#" represent the respective field value in an address field. These expressions must be 100% matching the TOM internal terms, therefore use the buttons provided to insert the terms into the formatting field.
