Administration Password: Enter the password the administrator will use to login to the eNewsletter Pro administration console.
Administrator Email: Enter the administrator's email address. All system messages will be delivered to this address. If a user submits a support question it will also be submitted to this address. If you would like to enter more than one address, separate them using a comma. For example, "firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com".
Default Application URL: Enter the URL where eNewsletter Pro has been installed. Include the trailing "/". Note that the program will automatically set this the first time your visit the preferences and you only need to modify this if the application is moved.

Sender Name for Administrative Messages: Specifies the From Name used for all administrative messages.
Sender Email for Administrative Messages: Specifies the From email address used for all administrative messages.
Default Image Upload Server Path: Specify the physical server path where images will be uploaded. The program defaults to a directory called "uploadedimages". If you are unsure of the server path, you can use the script called srvvar.asp to help determine the path. Note: The file upload feature will not work unless you set the proper permissions on the file upload directory. The anonymous user requires WRITE permissions on this folder. eNewsletter Pro will create the sub folder for each site off of this main folder.
Image Upload URL: Defines the URL that corresponds to the Image Upload Server Path that you defined above.
File path for database uploads: When users upload mdb and excel files for importing addresses they will temporarily be placed in this folder. This folder should have read/write/delete permissions so that the software can write the file, read the file, then delete it.
|Email Server Information for Outgoing Messages
Delivery method for individual messages such as opt-in, opt-out messages...
Send individual messages using alternative SMTP mail server: Select this option to have individual messages sent through an alternative SMTP mail server. This is highly recommended. Here is why. Suppose you submit 500,000 messages to the eNewsletter Pro mail server. The server may take hours to deliver these messages. If subscribers attempt to opt in it may take hours for their opt-in message to get delivered if it is going through this same server. Therefore, if you send individual messages through a separate SMTP server they should be delivered instantaneously.
SMTP Mail Server: If using the option above, you must enter a valid SMTP mail server that the individual messages will be sent through. Typically the mail server is "mail.yourdomain.com" however this may vary.
A port can be specified using a comma. For example: smtp.mymailserver.com,25
Username: If you are sending individual messages through a separate SMTP server and the SMTP server requires a username, enter it here.
Password: If you are sending individual messages through a separate SMTP server and the SMTP server requires a password, enter it here.
Delivery method to be used when sending a newsletter to a list...
Default Mail Delivery Program or Method: Select which program to use for delivering newsletters. eNewsletter Pro is installed with QuickSoft's SMTP Express, however, you may wish to use IIS's built-in SMTP server. You also have the option to relay all options through an SMTP mail server. Be mindful that if you use this option your messages may show up as relays and be more likely to be filtered as spam. Finally, you may also specify multiple delivery methods and allow the user to select a method, or force them to use a select method.
To use multiple servers, choose the option Use Multiple Servers.
Click here for information on defining multiple servers.
Click here for information on Direct Send Delivery Servers.
Throttle Write Speed: Use this option to monitor the speed at which files are written to the SMTP Express pickup folder. Delivery speed can be increased by using this option as Windows can become slow when too many files are written too quickly.
Maximum Messages Per Connection When Relaying: If you are relaying messages through an external SMTP server, you can use this option to reset the connection after every X messages.
Physical Server Path to eNewsletterPro Mail Engine Enter the physical server path where you installed the eNewsletter Pro mail engine. This was performed during the setup process. By default the folder is "C:\Program Files\eNewsletterPro". DO NOT include the trailing "\".
Delete SMTP Express Logs Older Than: Choose an option to automatically delete old SMTP Express Logs after a specified period.
Notify Admin of Relay Errors: Choose this option to receive an email message if relaying through the SMTP server fails.
Force Sends through Default Server if Message Contains Attachments: If you are sending using multiple servers, attachments can only be sent when the delivery server is the same server on which the web interface is installed. By choosing this option if a person emails a message with attachments they will be sent from the default server so the attachments do not fail.
|Information for Bounced Messages
Click for more information on bounces
Email Address For Bounced Addresses: Enter the email address where bounced messages are to be delivered. eNewsletter Pro will add an X-Sender header to each message. Mail servers that initially accept a message but later reject it for one reason or another will return it to the X-Sender address. eNewsletter Pro will continually filter these addresses.
|Note: This email account must specifically be setup for bounced addresses and no other use. After downloading each message eNewsletter Pro will delete the message so never use this address for personal messages or they will be unknowingly deleted!
POP 3 Mail Server: Enter the POP3 compliant mail server where the messages for the above email address are downloaded.
Username: Enter the username for logging into the above POP3 account for retrieving the email messages.
Password: Enter the password for logging into the POP3 account for retrieving the email messages.
Bounce Retention -- Use this option to retain a copy of bounces on the server. Retained bounces are stored in a folder called "FailedCollection" at \program files\enewsletterpro\failedcollection\. You have the option of not retaining the messages, retain all bounced email messages, retaining only those that the software did not recognize, retaining those that lost original eNewsletter Pro headers, etc. This option of saving unrecognized bounces is useful if you want to view the message then add the bounce reason to the system so it is recognized in the future.
Bounce Engine Threads: To limit the number of threads used by the eNewsletter Pro Bounce engine in filtering bounces, please select a value here. The lower the value, the slower the filtering process will be but also less server resources will be used.
Bounce Engine Disabled: Choose this option if you need to temporarily disable the Bounce Engine.
Disable Bounce Engine While Mail Engine Runs: Choose this option if you wish to avoid running the Bounce Engine at the same time the mail engine is running.
|Information for Unsubscribe By Email Feature
eNewsletter Pro supports a feature for unsubscribing by sending an email to a particular email account. This is most useful for automated removals using the List-Unsubscribe header. This header is recognized by major ISP's such as GMail and Hotmail. By including this header, Gmail can add a simple "Unsubscribe From this sender" at the top of each email. If the subscriber clicks the unsubscribe option, Gmail sends an automated unsubscribe request back to eNewsletter Pro and the person is removed and added to the opt out list.

Notify by email when disk space drops below 500 MB -- When the server disk space falls below 500 mb, eNewsletter Pro discontinues compiling email messages. The program then "sleeps" for 10 minutes until checking the disk space again. If below 500MB the application resumes compiling email messages. This option will send you an email message when the space goes below 500 MB.

Email Me When A Campaign Exceeds a Bounce Threshold (Soft or Hard, not Total): Choose this option to be notified when any campaign exceeds a specific threshold in terms of bounces.
