Configuration manual for PageSeeder

Email headers

This document explains how to configure custom properties and headers for HTML email.

Custom headers are not required, and if none are specified in the templates, PageSeeder uses the default settings.

Custom headers apply to HTML messages only, not text-format email.

HTML <title>

Change the <title>element in the HTML <head>element, to update the message subject (the “Subject” field).

For example:

    <title>My custom email subject</title>

HTML <meta>

To create custom properties, modify the content of the<meta> element in the HTML <head> element.

For example:

<meta name="sender-name"   content="John Smith" />
<meta name="sender-email"  content=""/>
