Fun Facts about sending emails
- The Send List Email tool is only available on the Contact Object.
- The email will be coming from the user who is creating the email. This means that if someone different is composing the emails that from whom you want the email to be sent, you will need to create this as a template and have the correct user send out the email.
- These emails will become an Activity for the Contact. This means you will see these emails in the Activity lists, the emails will update the Last Contacted On information for the Contact, and the contact activity can be aggregated at the Relationship level.
- The emails are Blind Copy emails, so there will be no distribution of client email information and this also help bypass the Spam filters on most email tools.
