What is the Mailtool?

The Mailtool tool allows users to send an email message to site participants by role, section, or group, and also provides a field for specifying non-site participant email addresses.

  • Saves a copy of the e-mail in the sender's Message tool "Sent" Folder and a copy of the email in the recipient's Message tool "Received" folder.
  • Contains a Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) function allowing the sender to send additional emails to Bcc recipients who receive the email but will not see the names of the other Bcc recipients, nor will other recipients see their name.

Mailtool:

  • Provides a field for specifying non-site participant email addresses.
  • If Email Archive tool is used on site, allows email to be sent to archive.
