(For the creation in Word see seperate documentation.)

Attachments can also be added to your segment. Therefore click on “e-mail attatchment” under adding in you menu ribbion.
Select the intended file an confirm you selection. The just added file can now be viewed in the “Attachment lines” tab.
Check settings and send segment
To see if you have really set everything correctly, you can send the segment to yourself once. The “Mail Test” function only generates a single mail, with the corresponding default settings and contents of the segment, to the assigned seller that is stored in the VK code in the segment. The mail address is taken from the stored mail address in the sales code.
Once you have checked the mail and found it to be correct, you can start the complete segment mailing using the “Mailing…” function. Make sure that you start the mailing with Dialog off, otherwise you will get a query that has to be confirmed every time.
The emails will now be sent to all contacts in your segment, this may take some time depending on the number of contacts, so please be patient.
After the sending is finished, you can check the status of the mails by clicking on Status in the ribbon. There you will then see each mail in the segment and whether it was sent successfully.
If your activity log items are set up, other employees can then also check there per customer who has received an email.
