The Email Profile section, accessible from the Email section, allows for additional email profiles to be set up. These profiles can be used to send out mass mails, text messages, or other emails where using a personal email address would be undesirable. An email profile must be set up to use the email features.
Other features such as Text Messaging and Mass Mail also utilize the Email Profile. For more information, visit the Text Messaging and Mass Mail articles.
If you are using a version of Avionté that is 14.2 or older, see the Email - Profile (Self Hosted, Versions 14.2 & Older) help page.

Signature Formatting Tips/Tricks
|Do NOT copy and paste your email signature from another source (i.e. Outlook, Google docs, etc.)
|These applications contain proprietary information that can lead to unexpected formatting and in some cases it can cause the signature to lose its edit-ability. If this happens contact the Avionté Support Center.
|Remove white space.
|When adding your signature text, press Enter on your keyboard to move your cursor to the next line, leaving white space between rows. Press Shift + Enter on your keyboard to make the white space narrower between rows.
|Enhance the text.
|Use the toolbar in the editor to select fonts, color, sizes and styles to enhance aspects of the text in the e-mail signature.
|Add an email address.
To add an email address to an e-mail profile, type the email address. It is automatically set up with a 'mail to' and doesn't require editing in the HTML tab.
|Add a link.
URLs are automatically set up as links, and do not require editing in the HTML tab. Simply add the URL in a "http://www.yourwebsitehere.com" format.
|Add hidden link.
Hidden links are links to external websites that don't follow the obvious URL format (http://www.yourwebsitehere.com). Instead, they may appear as text that says "Click here." To add a hidden link:
Add a Graphic via HTML
- Save the graphic or photo to an internet-accessible location, that is NOT the local PC.
- Navigate to Start Page > Actions menu > Email Profile
- Click the HTML tab at the bottom of the Email Profile wizard.
- Find the image on the internet.
- Right-click on the image.
