  • You can also add emails for each individual using the system.
  • You can also set up your own signature with images.
  • You can use Forefront like a normal email by Forwarding emails, replying to all, adding a CC, or a BCC as well.
  • Emails are presented as a thread so you can easily backtrack the conversation.
  • Email Stats are available to check how many emails were delivered, opened, if the sending failed, if links in the email were clicked and if someone unsubscribed or complained about your email. You can also drill down further to see what emails were these as well! (Only available for custom domain email integration not gmail)
