PerplexMail for Umbraco

Nowadays it is almost unthinkable to have a website that does not send out any emails. For example most websites have a basic form for submitting contact information which in turn sends out an email to the owner of the website and sometimes to the visitor as well.

This package gives content editors full control over these emails. You can edit the content, you can view which mails are sent and you can totally personalize an e-mail.

Getting started

The four steps you need to take to get full control over your emails:

  1. Download the PerplexMail .zip file. and install the package in the developer section of your Umbraco installation (publish the new PerplexMail nodes in the Content section)
  2. Open the example email and change the default "From"-emailaddress to your own. Leaving it to the default may cause the email to end up in your spambox. 
  3. Select the template to use (you can pick the provided example template (Located under PerplexMail > Templates). Save and publish your changes.
  4. Start sending emails!

The package includes a first example template and mail so you can start experimenting directly.

Umbraco Forms Integration

If you've already given your editors the power of editing their forms via Umbraco Forms you can now connect with PerplexMail to give them also full control over the emails that are sent after you submit a form.

But you do not have to integrate with Umbraco Forms. You can also use it for your own built forms!

Full documentation is available and we love to receive your feedback via our website or email.

Release notes

1.5: Greatly improved the CSS inliner, improved the if/then/else parsing logic. Renamed the "template" alias to "templateMail" to avoid double alias conflicts with the Lucene indexer. Added several minor bugfixes.

1.4: Added the option to send Test Mails to multiple recipients instead of only one. In addition, the entered recipients will be saved when the e-mail node is Published, so you do not have to re-enter them every time.

1.3: Added support to PerplexMail Workflow (Forms integration) to automatically add uploaded files as attachments and to get the full url of the file as a key.
