Sending Emails to People
These options require you to have first configured the settings for sending emails, set up with Maintenance ⇒ Email sending Configuration.
When you use such options, a window such as the following comes up:
The From Name and Email will be filled in with your name and email address that you configured in Maintenance ⇒ Email sending Configuration. You fill in To Name and Email as you wish. You can optionally check the "Cc: to yourself" or "Bcc: to yourself" checkboxes, to send a copy or blind copy respectively to your From Email address, in addition to the copy that goes to the donor's To Email address.
The To Email can include multiple email addresses separated by semicolons, such as "email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org", without the quotes. If you do that, a single email will get sent, with both addresses on the "To" line.
Then depending on the type of email, you may be allowed to fill in the Subject line and Body, and optionally specify an Attachment. (Use the Browse... button to select a file to attach.) The Body is just plain text, so it does not support things like fonts or images.
When you are satisfied with the email you have drafted, click the Send button to send it to the donor.
