How can I get my list to use the recipients address in the To field?
I have set up a list in GMS Communication Server but when messages are posted to the members the list address is maintained in the To field. I would rather have the member’s address in the To field.
This can be done quite simply using a bit of Mail Meta Language (MML) in the list headers. You should do the following.
- Select the required list on the Post> Processing page of the interface.
- Select "Headers and Footers" as the "Execute MML within posted messages" option
- Click on Update
- Click on the Edit button next to "Message insertions"
- Enter the following code in the "Additional header fields" box to add the full name and email address of the recipient
To: <# print(""",Name,"" <",RCPT,">"); #>
- Click on the Save button
Enter the following code in the "Additional header fields" box to add only email address of the recipient
To: <# print(RCPT); #>
Now when a message is sent to a list member the original To address will be replaced dynamically by using the intended recipient’s Name and email address as stored in the member database.
