Site collection settings

When configuring JungleMail you can decide which functions you are going to use. This way, you get the possibility to only activate those functions you need. This ensures the smoothest performance of JungleMail. In this tutorial, you will learn what these included options are and how to activate them. All of them can be managed globally in Central Administration settings and locally per site collection in the site collection settings. If you want to know how to let Central Administration settings be overridden by site collection settings, scroll down to the bottom of this tutorial.

This article skips the basic features (e.g., "From" field) and instead covers the more complex ones. The features are divided into the following categories:

  1. Interface and functionality control
  2. Template & Content
  3. Sending Settings
  4. Microsoft Exchange Service Connector
  5. Dynamics 365 Connector
  6. Newsletter Analytics
  7. Subscription Settings
  8. Email and Image Size Control
  9. Newsletter Archive
  10. Enterprise Features

Note: you might see some features or options enabled by default and marked in grey. This is because they inherit their settings from JungleMail global settings. To learn how you can override these settings, scroll down to the bottom of this tutorial.

1. Interface and functionality control

Recurrent Newsletter Settings

Limit the users able to create recurring newsletter campaigns to site collection administrators only, or disable the feature altogether.

Email Importance Settings

2. Template & Content

Built-in Templates

Layout Templates

If checked, this option displays layout templates in the Layouts tab.

3. Sending Settings

Embedded Images

Enable image embedding into email content. Note that image embedding increases the size of emails, especially if you use more than one image. Your sending performance will also be affected.

Unprocessed Email Placeholders

If enabled, this feature removes from an email any placeholders that JungleMail is unable to process (e.g., if the corresponding SharePoint list has been moved or renamed).

JungleMail History

If you want to store previously completed JungleMail jobs you should enable JungleMail history.

Note: when JungleMail History is enabled every single sent email will be stored in your SharePoint. This will significantly increase your content database size. We recommend not to enable this particular feature unless history is a strict requirement for you.

Peak Hours Management

Halt the processing of JungleMail newsletters during the specified time slots and automatically reschedule processing to the nearest non-peak time. Read more.

4. Microsoft Exchange Service Connector

If you want to access Exchange objects such as distribution groups or distribution groups, you need to enable Microsoft Exchange Service Connector.

5. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector

If you have recipients in Microsoft Dynamics 365, you can establish a connection with JungleMail to send newsletters directly to your Contacts, Leads or other lists directly without importing them. Read more.

6. Newsletter Analytics

JungleMail Tracker

If you want to track which recipients open emails and the links within your emails you should enable this feature.

In the additional settings, you can specify the URL in which your JungleMail Tracker Web Part is located. This page will be used to track email opens and clicks. You may also indicate certain IP addresses (e.g. your company's IP address) , to be excluded from the tracking statistics. JungleMail will automatically populate this field if you will place the Web Part in the same Site Collection as in which you have activated JungleMail Core feature.

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.

7. Subscription Settings

JungleMail Subscription

If you want your recipients to be able to subscribe and unsubscribe to your emails, and you want to be able to manage the subscriptions, you should enable this functionality.

Subscriptions Look and Feel

In this section, you can customize the confirmation and welcome email templates that will be sent to new subscribers once you have activated the features above. This is also where you can modify the appearance of the Subscription Web Part so that it matches your brand style. Read more about Subscription Web Part email and behaviors templates here .
