DigiMember is NO autoresponder or a newsletter plugin! However, there are situations where it is necessary to send e-mails with DigiMember:

  1. sending the access data
  2. the "Forgotten password" function

For these two cases DigiMember offers you the possibility to create corresponding e-mail texts and to set in which cases they will be sent.

Welcome E-Mail

After a new user has registered with you or acquired a membership, you can automatically send him/her a welcome e-mail with his/her access data. To do this, you must first set the E-Mail Communication in the DigiMember settings. We recommend that you use your own e-mail address (see E-mail communication - own e-mail address).

Click on "Mail texts " in the DigiMember menu. Then select above the product for which you want to configure your welcome email. Make sure that the "Welcome mail " tab is selected (default).

Willkommensmail

The subject line and the message field is already filled with text. You can copy this text or change it as you wish.

In the subject line you enter the text that is to appear in the recipient's e-mail box as the subject line. You can use predefined placeholders (e.g. username, password etc.). These can be found at the very bottom of the page.

Betreffzeile

In the message field you can enter the text that you want your new member to receive in their email. Here you can also work with placeholders.

Nachrichten Feld

There are several placeholders available, which you can insert into your e-mail as you wish. The placeholders are then replaced by the corresponding value.

E-Mail Platzhalter

Next, you can set the conditions for sending the welcome email. Here you have several options to choose from. Select them from the drop-down menu.

To test your e-mail click on the button "Send test e-mail ", then enter your e-mail address in the popup and click on "OK ". You will then receive a corresponding message whether the sending has worked. If you get an error message please check your E-Mail Communication settings again.

If you receive a confirmation that the email has been sent, check your inbox to see the email.

New password e-mail

If one of your users has forgotten his password, DigiMember provides a "Forgot password" function. This will be automatically displayed below the login field. If a user uses this function he will be asked to enter his user name. The user will then receive an e-mail with a link. By clicking on the link, the user confirms his password change. The new password is valid from this point on.

To edit this confirmation e-mail, click on "Mail Texts " in the DigiMember menu. Then select the tab "New password mail " at the top.

 Neues Kennwort

You can then customize the subject line and the text in the message field. As placeholder for the confirmation link use "%%url%%%".
