When you have multiple email addresses, synced with your Freshworks CRM account, you can choose to send emails from any one of the email addresses and have your customers reply to a completely different address too. Say you have a contact us email address like email@example.com listed on your website. When your customers send an email to this address, that email might be assigned to a sales rep say, Rebecca. Since Rebecca is responding to the email, she might want the customer to reply to her email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com. She can simply change the Reply-to address from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com and follow the email thread from her Inbox.
In Freshworks CRM, you can set a default From and Reply-to address and also change them in the email compose window if need be.
To change the From and Reply-To address,
- Click the Profile icon and select Settings.
- Under the Email Settings tab,
Click the From email drop-down and choose an email address from the list. This would be your default From address which is pre-filled in the email compose window.
Click the Reply-to email drop-down and choose an email address from the list. This would be your default Reply-to address which is pre-filled in the email compose window.
You can always change the default From and Reply-to address in the email compose window by clicking the drop-down and selecting a different email address from the list.
Note: The email addresses listed in the From and Reply-To drop-down include, - The registered email address of the user (login email) - The email address connected to Freshworks CRM via IMAP - The email addresss setup for auto-forwarding - Team inbox email addresses that are setup - The Freshworks CRM account email address and the user email address (both of which are provided by Freshworks CRM) You cannot change the 'From' address when you are sending emails from Freshworks CRM using youe email provider's SMTP. It is restricted to your email address connected via IMAP/SMTP.
