Step 1 - Connecting An Email Channel

The first step to taking advantage of Re:amaze's features is to create an email channel. A channel is mapped to one email address and can also be connected to an existing email address on your own domain.

Adding an Email Channel

Let's say you want to manage your current email support conversations within Re:amaze, and your current support address is support@acme.com. You'll be able to connect your support address to an email channel so you can effortlessly reply to customer emails within Re:amaze.

Click on the "Settings" tab in Re:amaze, click on "Email Channels" on the left hand side. Click on "Add a Channel".

At the next screen, make sure you're adding a channel for the right brand. The channel name is what you want to name this channel internally within Re:amaze. For example, it can be "Acme Support".

Re:amaze will automatically assign an email address to the channel. If you want to use your own email address and have it forwarded into Re:amaze, you can set it up after the channel has been created.

Select the default notification recipients you want for this channel. You can also pick all or none.

When you're done, click on "Next Step".

Connecting an Existing Email Address

Re:amaze can connect to your existing email address (e.g. support@{yourcompany.com}). To do so, click "Connect Email Address" after you've created your email channel or select an existing email channel that you have already created.
