Sending Emails Directly From EasyAs
With EasyAs you can send Emails to all clients in your address book.. This also means that you can send invoices, quotes and purchase orders directly to clients without leaving the software.
Please be aware that the EasyAs Emailer is not a replacement for standard emailing programs. The EasyAs Emailer is a Text Base Emailer, it will not allow you to send a graphic style email complete with different fonts, sizes, colors etc… If you require a full service emailing facility that will allow for all of the standard benefits that traditional email programs provide then continue to use your standard programs.
The EasyAs Emailer exists for one purpose, and that is to provide an additional means of sending invoices, quotes and purchase orders directly from the software. Whilst it is a text base emailing system I am sure for those whom use it will find it a valuable asset in the managing of their businesses..
It is essential that you take the time to view ALL of the videos below. This is because all the videos cover different aspects and different issues surrounding the easyas emailer.
We also strongly suggest that you create a separate printing folder for all of your individual businesses. Because doing this will in turn overcome a problem that exists with Windows 8 (which could also present itself on other operating systems such as XP or Windows 7): Information on setting up Individual Printing Folders

Additional Information that might be helpful for Gmail and Hotmail Setup
Please be aware that a lot of free email providers are no longer allowing access to there servers.. Those that do require a monthly or yearly fee to allow access.
As is expected for the majority of users you will need to use your isp settings – for outgoing mail.
Connection Type: SSL
Mail Server: smtp.gmail.com
Logon Name: Use your complete email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org
Logon Password: Enter your gmail login password
During our testing of the Emailer we exclusively used our own isp provider, gmail, or mailjet
We made over 50 attempts to try to use hotmail (using a combination of many different settings), however this failed in all instances. We have also seen major problems with hotmail email delivery over the last 2 years with many clients not receiving emails, and now we are also seeing server connection issues, so this tells us there still seems to be problems with hotmail on many levels… Thus it appears that you will not be able to use the EasyAs Emailer with Hotmail Settings.
Due to this we suggest that if you are going to be using the emailer and if your business email account is with hotmail, then you might want to setup the emailer using your isp information… This information should be readily available from your internet service provider..
If this is a problem then you might want to check out another 3rd party source such as mailjet.. In fact all the EasyAs Emails now use MailJet as the email provider, so all our email settings are now using mailjet as the server. We changed to mailjet late in 2012 so as to overcome many of the hotmail issues with emails not being delivered (this seems to have solved all problems with emails not arriving into hotmail boxes), and because of this we now use them exclusively.
Please also note, that it is not possible to simply setup a new gmail account and attempt to use gmail servers as your settings, this is because google will change your the hotmail email address (that you place into the from box) and insert the gmail email address.. Google simply deletes anything that is not their email address (gmail) and replaces it with the gmail address – please see the video above titled “other issues with gmail”..
Other Free Mail Provider
To date we have not tested any other free server providers, but as the easyas emailer uses standard protocols it should not be a problem using the emailer with other providers (providing you enter the right information into the settings area and providing they allow access).
