Customizing an eCart Checkout wizard generated email receipt is very straightforward.

  1. Open the order confirmation page created by the eCart Checkout wizard from the Files panel.
  2. From the Server Behaviors panel, double-click the Universal Email server behavior.

  3. When the Universal Email dialog box opens, switch to the Body tab.
  4. Click Edit to edit the email body's HTML directly, or click DW Edit to edit the body in Dreamweaver.

    When choosing DW Edit, you will be returned to Dreamweaver for making the necessary modifications. When you have finished making those changes, Press Ctrl (Cmd) + S to save your page and return to Universal Email.

  5. When you're done, click OK to close the Universal Email interface.
  6. Press Ctrl (Cmd) + S to save your page, then publish it to a email compatible server to test the results.
