How to Configure Email Services?
Once you are in the location, click on Settings -> Email Services
If a lead responds to an email, that response is always going to show up in Conversations tab, however, if you want a COPY of the lead’s email response to go to someone’ email, you could put in that email address there.
You could enter multiple forwarding email addresses here separated by a comma, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
Forwarding address and BCC Emails work only on Mailgun and LC email, we don't support other smtp providers
Now we have the option to Add a reply-to address. All incoming emails will be sent to that email address instead of routing to the Conversation tab.
Forward to assigned user
Enable Reply Tracking - Other SMTP Providers
There's no option to enable reply tracking for Mailgun since it's directly integrated with the Receiving route set up in Mailgun. Learn more about How to setup Replies in MailGun here.
If you mask the sender email like email@example.com, the reply-to address will show as firstname.lastname@example.org, which is the Mailgun subdomain we set up for the location in agency Settings-> Mailgun. Replies will still appear correctly in the Sub-account's Conversation tab.
When reply tracking is enabled:
The highlighted email shown in the screenshot below will be the reply-to email address. So we can capture the email replies back into the Conversation tab to read, manually respond or trigger a response using tags, etc. This will be the limitation of using SMTP integration.
We are not able to get email replies back to the Conversation tab if we copy the highlighted email below and send a direct email/ initiate a new email thread with it. We will need to reply to the email sent from the system.
When reply tracking is disabled:
The highlighted email shown in the screenshot below will be the reply-to email address. We will not be able to capture the email replies back into the Conversation tab. But responses will be going to the configured sender email in the inbox.
1. Why the attached files do not get forwarded along with the email replies?
The forward settings in the email services tab do not support forwarding attachments. So if the contact replies to the emails with an attachment, we will need to log in to the HighLevel conversation view to see it.
