Email is one way that end-users can submit tickets to your Atera acount and have conversations with technicians to resolve their issues.
Your default support address can be found in the Auto-generated Email XXXX@ticketing.atera.com. You can also use other support addresses.
Defining your Email address:
During this step you will select the email address to which all incoming messages will be sent and converted into tickets.
- Add your support email, for example firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Add "Reply From Name".
In addition you can configure the following:
- Automatically create new contact on incoming Email.
- Send Ticket Reply to contacts by email.
- Use technician name in email replies.
When you reply to a ticket, the default email sender is "email@example.com". ( The reply from will be what you previously added in the "Reply From Name" )
