Using Universal Email To send eInvite

Please is it possible to use Universal Email to send eInvite from a website. For example if people can send eInvite or message from my website by just putting the recipent email address in the form and when they click send the receipent should get the message in the their inbox.

Thank you for your help.

This is definitely possible and easy to do with Universal Email. The idea is that you have a page with a form on it, then apply the Universal Email server behavior. To get the email to go to the address entered you just use the lightning bolt icon for the to 'to' address and select the email field from your form.

We have some guides and tutorials on implementing Universal Email that can be found on the support page, here is a link:

Thank you for your help, I've managed to do it,
but the problem is that both the Recipients Email Address and Sender's Email address is being displayed in the email that is received by the Recipients.

Also the content that I inserted in the body of the mail and the image is not display with the email received by the Recipients it only shows the Sender name, Sender Email address, Recipients Name, Recipients Email address, submitbutton: Submit




thank you

Based on what you are describing it seems that you may have followed one of the guides that has you use a loop to display the elements in the body of the message. Instead of doing it this way you can just use the edit with DW button in the body tab of the Universal Email interface and use the bindings to drag and drop the form elements value ino the message. This way you control the content of the message and will have only what you specify.

In order for the image to show in the email you will need to set the source to be an absolute web url for that image.

Do you have an example of what the flash code is like in the email message that comes through? Also, have you tried this with various mail clients, like using a web based client versus using Outlook?

Can you save one of the email messages as a file and attach that? I will need to see what the code in the email message itself looks like and compare it with what you have on your page to help determine what is happening with it.

Also, is this any different for you if you use a web based email like hotmail or gmail versus a desktop based mail client like Outlook or Mail?
