In order to set up a custom SMTP server as an alternate delivery channel, ToutApp does require that you utilize some form of authentication for security purposes. You can set up any SMTP server on your SMTP configuration page. To set up an Office365 SMTP server, Microsoft recommends the following configuration: SMTP Server - smtp.office365.com Server Port - Port 587 - Secured Authentication Method - Login (SSL/TLS) Username or Login - your Office365 email address Password - your Office365 email password Your Domain - leave blank If you are still having issues setting up your SMTP server, you will want to partner with your Exchange Admin to ensure the right credentials are being used. Note: When sending through your Office365 SMTP, Microsoft imposes a limit of 30 messages sent per minute , and a limit of 10,000 recipients per day. Additionally, each member of your team who wishes to send their emails through their Office365 SMTP server will need to set this up with their own email address and password in their ToutApp settings. Checking the box for the setting 'Make this deliverability channel to all my team members' will not work for this configuration, in accordance with Microsoft's Office365 account policies.

Related Articles My Dynamic Fields Won't Fill Out! Why?​ Why We Love The First Name Dynamic Field?​ Why Did My Email Send Without Populating All Dynamic Fields?​ Tout’s dynamic fields are our form of mail merge.

These fields allow you to email multiple contacts and auto-complete these fields without having to type them out separately for each contact. To add a dynamic field to a template, just select the one you'd like to use from the Tout Dynamic Fields button within the 'Edit Template' view page. When emailing contacts who exist in Tout, you can use the basic dynamic fields.  These will pull directly from the contact IF they exist in toutapp.com If you are emailing contacts who exist in Salesforce you can take advantage of the Salesforce dynamic fields.  These all begin with "sfdc".  As long as you have a connection to Salesforce, these fields will call directly to the lead/contact in Salesforce to populate the information in the template: Once you add the Dynamic fields, it can look like this: When I go to send an email to Albus, it would look like: More on how to use dynamic fields here​.

With the help of ToutApp you can have your emails and calls logged as an activity into Salesforce, so that you can worry about writing awesome emails and we can worry about getting all that great data into Salesforce. A key part to having valuable data in Salesforce is having the Type field populate the correct value Note: Logging emails via BCC will not look to the Task Type picklist and will instead automatically populate the type field as email, because they are being delivered to salesforce through your BCC address. Requirements Connection with Salesforce No Default Type value selected on Task Type picklist Call, Reply, and Email must all exist under the Task Type picklist (capitalization matters) No Workflows or Triggers taking action on the value of the Type field Setup First, we will want to check that we have the correct picklist values in place. You will need the help of your Salesforce Admin to make any changes to your picklist. 1) Navigate to Salesforce.com and click on Setup in the top right corner. 2) Click Customize 3) Click Activities 4) Click Task Fields 5) Click Type 6) You are now at the Task Type Picklist! Check to make sure that there is not a 'Default' selected. 7. Check to make sure that there is a Type value listed for Email, Call, and Reply. Now that this is in place you will begin to see the Type field populate the corresponding value for logged Emails, Calls, and Replies. These values will NOT be populated on Tout reminder tasks. Note: If you do not see 'Reply' as a value you will want to add it by clicking New. 'Reply'is not a standard value in Salesforce.

Reply Tracking is done by looking at a message ID that is in every email you Tout. Every email will have a unique message Id in it which allows us to have some of the best reply tracking around. If ToutApp cannot track your prospect's reply to your Touted email, it will not be able to stop a campaign based on reply detection or log that reply to Salesforce. You will want to make sure that your emails meet the following requirement so that your prospect's replies are tracked. Requirement Connection with your email server Connection with Email Server: ToutApp must be connected with your inbox so that we know when a new reply has arrived. You will need to have your ToutApp account connected to Gmail​ . If you are using Outlook we will need to integrate with your exchange server . What do we mean any email address can reply? This means that if you email JonSnow@HouseStark.com and he responds with JonSnow@TheNightsWatch.com , we will be able track the reply.  Additionally if you email JonSnow@HouseStark.com and copy Jon.Arryn@LordoftheVale.com , and Jon Arryn writes you back, it will also detect the reply and end the campaign.

It is becoming increasingly important for teams to be in compliance with email privacy laws. To help teams with this we are releasing some enhancements to our current unsubscribe experience. These changes will be released in April. To learn more about how what these changes mean check out our overview below.             Overview Only One Unsubscribe Type Remove Unsubscribes Unsubscribe History Card Appended Unsubscribes Unsubscribe Messaging Settings Page Unsubscribe Syncing ToutApp <> Salesforce New Unsubscribe Group Deleting Contacts with Unsubscribes Unsubscribe Landing Page 1. Only One Unsubscribe Type Teams that have utilized unsubscribes in past will remember two types of unsubscribes, 'Block Unsubscribes' and 'Unsubscribes'. ToutApp is moving to one type of unsubscribe type called 'Unsubscribe'. All existing unsubscribes will now fall under this category. Now, when a contact is unsubscribed it will mean that they will be removed from all active campaigns and scheduled emails and users will be blocked from emailing that contact with Tout. 2. Remove Unsubscribes Previously both admins and sales users could remove unsubscribes. To be in compliance with law and allow our customers to better manage their unsubscribes we have moved unsubscribe privileges to admins only. When an admin removes an unsubscribe they will be presented a pop up that asks them to select a reason for removing the unsubscribe. By law, users should only be removing an unsubscribe if they can show proof that the contact requested to be contacted. 3. Unsubscribe History Card The Unsubscribe History Card is a new feature that helps admins and users get contextual evidence about their contacts unsubscribe history. The Unsubscribe history card can be found on the About tab of the Person Details View. Date Shows the date the unsubscribe/resubscribe was taken. Details Resubscribe - If the details shows “Resubscribe” it means that a ToutApp admin manually removed the unsubscribe from the contact record. It may also show some details related to why the contact was unsubscribed. Unsubscribe - If the details show “Unsubscribe” it means that the contact was unsubscribed. Source CRM Sync - Unsubscribe was captured by a sync from Salesforce. Manual - User clicked the unsubscribe button to unsusbcribe. Clicked Link - Recipient of an email clicked on the unsubscribe link “Admin Name” - An admins name will show when the action was to resubscribe contacts. This lets users know who removed the unsubscribe 4. Appended Unsubscribes It is important for any sales email to include an option to unsubscribe. This not only helps teams stay in compliance with the law but also helps teams deliverability reputation stay high. To help with both of these points we are now appending an unsubscribe link to all emails sent from ToutApp.com. This will not affect emails sent from users email client. 5. Unsubscribe Messaging Settings Page We have always allowed teams to customize their unsubscribe link messaging but now admins can set the unsubscribe link messaging for their entire team to ensure messaging is consistent. 6. Unsubscribe Syncing ToutApp <> Salesforce Keeping your data in Salesforce and ToutApp synced is important, that is why we are introducing a new field for users to sync unsubscribes with. Now teams can sync their ToutApp unsubscribes with a 'Sales Opt Out' field. This helps teams who want to differentiate between sales unsubscribes that are collected in ToutApp and marketing unsubscribes collected in Marketo. For organizations that would like their marketing and sales unsubscribes aligned they can choose to sync with the 'Email Opt Out' field in Salesforce, this is the common field in Salesforce that both Marketo and ToutApp can sync with. To get access to the new Sales Opt Out field, you will need to install our new Salesforce fields. More on this coming soon! 7. New Unsubscribe Group New look and feel for Unsubscribe group Additional columns added for more insight into unsubscribed contacts Ability to search for unsubscribed contacts in this group Admins can filter by “My Unsubscribes” or “Team Unsubscribes” 8. Deleting Contacts with Unsubscribes Contacts with unsubscribes cannot be deleted. This helps teams to make sure that their unsubscribe list is accurate. 9. Unsubscribe Link Landing Page The Unsubscribe Link is something we have long supported. With this update we now have a new landing page for prospects that allows them to provide an unsubscribe reason. Better data collection means your team can understand why a customer unsubscribed, which turns into feedback for your content and messaging.

We give you the option to configure your emails so that they can be delivered through your own custom SMTP server. This way you can control the deliverability of the emails that you are sending. Here's how to get started with SMTP: 1. Navigate to our SMTP set up page from Settings 2. Enter the required information. Ask your company's IT administrator if you have questions about what to enter here. 3. If you’re on a Team plan and see the option to Send all Tout emails in my team through this server connection, you can decide if you’d like to roll this out for just yourself or for everyone on your team. (We do not support this feature for Office 365 SMTP Integration.) 4. Choose Authenticate and Save. ToutApp will now deliver all emails through your server. If you're running into errors setting up SMTP, try changing your port number . If that doesn't work, you can always contact us at team@toutapp.com for extra help. Note: Because every SMTP portal is different, we do not have access to these SMTP credentials. If you are unsure of what goes in each field, we recommend reaching out to your SMTP provider. Though we do support custom SMTP servers, we do not support custom SMTPs that are designed to route through integrations that ToutApp does not sync with. (Anything besides Gmail, Outlook, or OWA at this time)

As a company, we work very hard to ensure that our deliverability rates remain high. Still, though, there are certain user behaviors and settings that can trigger emails being sent to the spam folder. Check Your Settings Custom Domain Tracking: This allows you to have all of your tracking links show up as go." yourdomain " instead of go.toutapp. Some email security will see that the email is coming from "yourdomain" but the link is being rerouted to go.toutapp. By implementing custom domain link tracking your emails will look legitmate and have a higher rate of hitting the recipients inbox. Email Delivery Channel: By default, your emails are sending through ToutApp servers. By setting up your own Gmail or custom SMTP you can give your emails the best opportunity to land in a recipient's inbox. Click here to read more about selecting the right delivery channel for your needs. Check Your Email Behaviors Keep your emails short and informal and paste your templates as an email you've written before. More tips here. Avoid overformatted emails, or messages where you're using transactional words. More info here. Make sure you have a fully completed email signature with a physical address. Read up and make sure you are complying with CAN-SPAM laws

Yes. Just CC and BCC individuals like you normally would on your emails. When it comes to tracking, though, our service will be unable to differentiate between who opened your email… whether it was the person in the "To" field or the "CC" field. You can occasionally guess this based on the user’s location and browser, but it’s not an exact science.

ToutApp supports SSO through the SAML 2.0 specification. However, we don't have direct integrations with any provider at this time . We will need to collect some information from your SSO provider in order to get this setup. Requirements SSO account Metadata.xml from SSO account (issue URL,the endpoint for validation, and a public key) Setup The metadata.xml from your team's SSO instance should contain the issuer URL, the endpoint for validation, and a public key. We will also need the SSO Location for your company's SSO account to be a unique domain. For example, we require a unique subdomain like ‘toutapp.pingidentity.com' or similar. Without this type of unique identifier, we will not be able to set up SAML from the dashboard. One Login and Okta do not always provide unique identifiers when assigning a URL. If you are using Okta or One Login it means we will not be able to set up one login from the dashboard button. We will still be able to set it up from the Single Sign On button on ToutApp.com. Once we have that information, we will work with our engineering team to set this up for your subscription.

Simply put, an SMTP server is a machine, or collection of machines, whose primary purpose is to send, receive, and/or relay messages between email senders and receivers. An SMTP server will have an address, or addresses, that can be set by the mail client or application that you are using, generally formatted as smtp.serveraddress.com. Most server names are written in the form "smtp.domain.com" or "mail.domain.com": for instance, a Gmail account will refer to smtp.gmail.com. But that's not a unified rule, so you should pay attention and get the right SMTP parameters. Remember anyway that only a professional SMTP server will guarantee that all your emails will be correctly delivered. Generally speaking, free outgoing servers like the ones associated to Gmail or Hotmail are not designed for mass email sending. So if you're putting up a newseltter campaign or simply don't want to get any of your messages lost, you should switch to a dedicated outgoing server.
