Secret Inbound Email Address
With Charley, you can send out an email campaign to a specific mailing list even if you’re not logged into the Dashboard. Send a campaign when you’re on the go from your phone, tablet, or computer (and you just don’t feel like logging in, it’s cool).
Watch the video to see how simple it is to send out an email blast from your own email inbox, or continue reading to get the cliff notes.
After getting your Charley account set up, you can create your Mailing Lists. Each mailing list is given a unique secret inbound email address (note that you can refresh this email address if you ever feel the need – the option is right next to the email address). Find this option in the List Settings tab.This is what you’ll use to create Email Blast campaigns from your own inbox.
Pro Tip: Save the email address as a contact with a descriptive name – you wouldn’t want to mix up mailings.
Once you have this information, sending out email blast campaigns from your inbox is simple. Pull up the email you’d like to deliver and paste the secret inbound email address in the To field.
If you need to adjust the subject line, the from name, or the from email address, you can use the following short codes:
[subject Updated Subject Line Here]
[name John Doe]
[email [email protected]]
When you’re satisfied, go ahead and hit send. You’ll get an email confirmation with how the email will appear, and you will be asked if you want to see the email in Charley, delete it, or go ahead and send it to the mailing list that you’ve picked.
If everything looks good, hit that send button and it’ll start delivering. Clicking send will open up your browser and take you to the campaign detail page. This is just to let you know that everything is working.
