Configuring Email Compose Settings | Zoho CRM - Help

Configuring Email Compose Settings

Emails are an integral part of business communications. From discussions to fixing meetings, sharing important documents to engaging interested prospects, all veritable business activities revolve around emails. Though businesses follow a standard template that is common across all communications. At times businesses prefer to send emails to their clients in a particular style that suits their professional requirements.

In Zoho CRM, users can send emails directly to the Leads, Contacts, Deals etc. The emails composed and sent directly from the modules cannot be customized and follow a standard system-defined font style, color, and appearance. Users have to manually customize them for each email that is composed.

The Compose Settings provide users with options to customize the direct emails that are sent from the above mentioned modules. They can set the font size, color, appearance, default from address etc. and maintain uniformity and consistency across emails. 
Note: This is an in-built functionality of Zoho CRM available in all editions.

Configuring Compose Settings

The compose settings allows CRM users to customize the default email interface to their preference. The settings can be customized by all CRM users. 
In compose settings you can customize the:
  1. Font type
  2. Font size
  3. Default From Address
  4. Email signatures

Font type and size: A font can be chosen from the available list which will apply by default for all emails that are composed from CRM using the "Send email" option.


Default from address: All email addresses that are added under organization emails or those emails which are configured through IMAP or POP integration will be available as the list of default "from" addresses. A user can choose any 1 email address as the default from address, so that whenever they compose an email for their contacts this default address is displayed. 
Note: While configuring the compose settings, users can view only those org email addresses that have been shared with them. For example, if sales@zylker-eu.com is not shared with marketing admins profile then this email address will not be displayed for users in that role while configuring the default address. Read more about organization emails.
Email signatures: Emails that are available under organization emails, user's own email address, and emails which are configured through IMAP or POP integration will be listed for the user to set signatures. A user can set a maximum of 5 email signatures and one signature can be used for multiple email addresses.
For example,
sales@zylker-eu.com and sales@zylker.com can both have a common email signature:
Best Compliments from Zylker Family,
Contact us at: +718889999000

PS: You are receiving this email because your email address is registered with us. To stop these further correspondence email us at: noemails@zylkerservices.com
While composing an email the associated signature will be auto-populated.
