Looking for an easy way to email your invoices? With Invoice Manager for Excel installed, any invoices created by using our templates could be easily sent to the client electronically with just one click of mouse, in any format you choose - PDF, Excel sheet, PNG image. This bypass traditional paper invoices.

Invoice Manager for Excel supports SMTP email servers as the sender.

By default, the "Extract/Email" button extracts invoice only - i.e. copy the current invoice to a separate Excel spreadsheet file. If you want to send invoices via email using this button, follow the procedure describe below.

  1. Click the "Settings" button on the "Invoice" ribbon tab.
  2. Go to the "Extract / Email" tab.
  3. Click and activate "Send invoice via email".
  4. There are invoice format you can choose form: "Attach PDF invoice to email", "Attach Excel invoice to email" and "Attach image (PNG) invoice to email". Choose the proper one you like.

    Generally, PDF invoices are recommended as it is the widely accepted business document format, as detailed here. On the other hand, emailing invoices in Excel spreadsheet format to your clients is not recommended.

  5. Set up your email server configurations - SMTP server, port number, email account user name and password. You could obtain these information from your email service provider.
  6. The "Email from" field is what you customer will see on the "from" field when they open your email.
  7. The "BCC to" field allows you to specify a BCC email address ("Blind Carbon Copy"). This should be one of your own email address. If you specify one, Invoice Manager for Excel sends email not only to your client (email address obtained from invoice, or customer record), but also to the BCC email address for your own records. It is recommended that you fill in this field.
  8. Click the "Email Template" button to view or edit the content of your invoice email. The "##invoiceid##" and "##balancedue##" are two variables - they will be replaced with actual values when building an email.
  9. Click "Send test email" to verify that the options you set on this page works correctly. Make sure you clicked the "Apply" button before clicking the "Send test email" button.
  10. If you check the "Request return receipt" option, Invoice Manager for Excel set this flag with your email. Note that there is no way to force your clients to return a receipt - that is they may choose to not sending the receipt. When delivering a message to a recipient's computer system there is no way to force that computer system to issue an acknowledgment to the sender.
  11. Click "Apply" to confirm the email settings.
  12. Click "Close" to close the "Settings" dialog box.

From now on, the "Exact / Email" button will email invoice to the client in the format you specified (PDF, Excel spreadsheet, or PNG), instead of exacting an invoice or receipt. This "Send with email" command is also available on the "Invoice Edit" window.
