Global settings

Once you have enabled JungleMail features, you can activate and configure settings that apply to JungleMail globally, i.e., for all site collections where JungleMail operates. Global settings for a specific feature can be overridden at site collection level by site collection administrators, but only if the feature has Allow overriding this setting in site collection box checked in global settings. If the box is not checked, site collection administrators will not be able to make changes in the feature settings.

To access global settings, go to Central Administration and select JungleMail global settings.

1. Email 'From' and 'Reply-to' fields

JungleMail offers several options to specify the 'From' and 'Reply-to' address for your sent campaigns. By default, the outgoing email settings for the Web Application are used. If you want the email address of the user who created the campaign to show as the 'From' and 'Reply-to' address, then select  'JungleMail job author'. You also have the option to enter an email address manually.

Read more about custom "From" and "Reply-To" addresses here.

2. BCC field (Pro/Enterprise feature)

If you want to specify 'BBC' addresses for your future campaigns you can do that here. Use commas or semicolons to separate email addresses.

3. Additional recipients

In the Additional E-Mail Recipients field, enter the email addresses of people who you want to receive a copy of all new emails sent. Users will be able to see additional recipients but not remove them. Site collection administrators will be able to add or remove additional recipients if, in the global settings, Allow overriding this setting in site collection settings box is checked. Use commas or semicolons to separate email addresses.

In the Additional Recipients field, enter the email addresses of people who you want to receive a report of new JungleMail jobs. Use commas or semicolons to separate email addresses.

4. Tracking settings

JungleMail Tracker

Enable or disable email tracking functionality. 

JungleMail Tracker Exclude IPs

You can exclude specific IP addresses from email tracking and reports. Use commas to separate addresses and wildcard masks to specify IP address ranges.

JungleMail Tracker Data Pseudonymization

This feature replaces recipient email addresses with pseudonyms and prevents JungleMail Tracker from storing other data that could be used to identify recipients from JungleMail report data.

5. Sending delay

Set the interval between emails (in seconds). If you want no delay, enter '0'.

6. SMTP server settings

To specify the outbound email server, you can use SharePoint web application settings or enter the server address manually. You can also opt to encrypt JungleMail-server connection and enable user authentification instead of anonymous access.

7. Exchange web services (EWS) connection

If you want to access Exchange objects such as Dynamic Distribution groups and Distribution groups, you need to enable Microsoft Exchange Service Connector. Read more.

8. Cumulative Reports (Enterprise feature)

If you want to use the Cumulative Reports feature in JungleMail, enable it here. Read more.

To open Cumulative Reports, select  Show direct access link. Use this link to access the Cumulative Reports page. For easier   access , you can save the link in the quick launch ribbon by adding a new link and pasting the URL. Do not forget to add permissions for users who will access Cumulative Reports on this site collection. It is not possible to access Cumulative Reports by opening its host site collection. This site will be empty when accessed from the UI.

9. Sending error management

Retry Sending Emails

You can set the limit to the number of attempts to send a single email (i.e., email for a particular recipient) after SMTP error. If the number is set to 1, JungleMail will try to resend once, and then will move on to the email for the next recipient.

Email Sending Error Handling

If JungleMail encounters multiple sending errors in a row, most likely there's something wrong with newsletter or system configuration, meaning that the rest of the emails will not go through either. To save resources, you can limit the sequential error number and make JungleMail terminate the newsletter if this limit is reached.

10. Simultaneous sending settings

Simultaneous Newsletter Limit (Enterprise feature)

Limit the number of newsletters that JungleMail processes at the same time. JungleMail supports sending up to 8 newsletters simultaneously. The number that you set cannot be higher than the number of threads.

Multithreaded Email Sending (Enterprise feature)

Limit the computing resources available for sending newsletters by limiting the number of threads. Multithreaded Email Sending supports up to 16 threads. The more threads you specify, the higher the load on your system. For maximum performance, we recommend setting the thread number by multiplying the number of CPU cores by 2 (e.g., 3 cores – 6 threads).

11. Attachment limits

Specify the limits to the number of attachments per email, attachment total size per email, and individual attachment size. Although JungleMail supports values from 1 to 99, we recommend using caution while modifying the default values, as attachment-heavy emails are more likely to be rejected by an outbound server or a recipient's email client.

12. Digital Signature (Enterprise feature)

JungleMail supports the use of digital certificates to prove newsletter authorship and to assure the recipient that email content has not been changed in transit. Once the certificate is installed on your servers, JungleMail will automatically select it by the "From" field value (email address). This feature can be disabled, optional or required as a global setting, with an option to override at the site collection level.

13. Localization

The majority of JungleMail UI texts can be modified by changing key values (see the example below). Contact the support for the key list.

14. Layout templates

If enabled, this feature displays layout templates in the Layouts tab.
