Profile name and email account type

The name and category of the Email Manager profiles are important for identification and sorting

Profile Name

The first thing to do when creating a new Email Manager Profile is to give it a name.  It is a good idea to name the profile according to some sort of naming convention that will allow easy and intuitive understanding of what it does.

For example:

You may call a profile that creates new jobs something like…

  • Log job - Reset password
  • Log job - New employee setup
  • Log job - General support request

You may call a profile that updates existing jobs something like…

  • Update job - General client response
  • Update job - OK to close job

Profile Category

The next step is to classify the profile with an appropriate Category code.   This will assist when searching, filtering and updating your Email Manager profiles. Use the drop-down box to select an appropriate code. 

These are administered via the System Codes screen.

Email Account type

Choose the email source. Each profile can scan email coming from a different email source.

Email source

Microsoft 365

Email source is Microsoft 365. Before Microsoft 365 accounts can be set, the Microsoft System Administration settings needs to be configured first.

Google Service Account

Email source is Google. Before Google Service Account can be set, the Google System Administration settings needs to be configured first.

Outlook Profile

An Outlook profile will be used as the source, and any email account that is configured for this Outlook profile. Before Outlook profile can be set, the Outlook Options should be considered.

Internet email (legacy)

Connnect to an SMTP/IMAP source using a legacy username/password combination. This option is not recommended as email providers are moving away from username/password authentication to more secure and modern options.

See Email Account Configuration for setup options.
