Best Practice: It is recommended that your email settings have your inbox set to automatically delete emails older than 30-days (60 days or 90 days based on preference) to prevent the inbox from getting full. Once the inbox is full emails will no longer forward to Vantaca.
Important: Clients may need to enable permissions found under Roles > Security > Mailroom > Email Accounts in order to have full functionality of the Email Accounts page.
Creating a Forwarding Email
Go to Mailroom > Email Accounts.
Click the New Email Account button.
Note: You may also edit an existing email address.
Select Forwarding as the Email Usage Type.
Enter the Email you'll be forwarding emails from.Note: This is what Vantaca will display as the Email Sender.
Select the Email Type from the dropdown.
Select an Action Type from the dropdown.Note: If an Action Type is not selected, the action item may not be created when your email client forwards the emails. This is an integral part of the configuration since you'll need to retrieve a verification code from this action item to fully set up this feature.
Select an Association from the dropdown if necessary, or select (All Associations)
Enter a From Name in the provided field.
This can be used to display as an additional from field on the email. Clients would enter their association’s name in this field to ensure homeowners aren’t confused as to who sent the email. Note: If All Association is selected, the Company name would be used instead. Example: “Vantaca Myles” is the From Name and “firstname.lastname@example.org” is the Email.
Click Update to complete.
After you’ve filled out the new Forwarding Email Usage Type, you can take the newly created forwarding address, found in the Forwarding column, and configure the rest of the settings in youyr email. Note: The forwarding address is system generated and cannot be modified.
