Introduction and Features

R:Mail Editor 11 allows users to compose email messages in a graphic user interface.

The key feature in R:Mail Editor is the ability to create the body of their messages in a Message Editor. With the this utility, users are no longer required to compose the line-by-line HTML body for their R:Mail messages, and in the process saving many hours of code development. The Message Editor allows for the rich formatting of text content, including common structural treatments like lists, formatting treatments like bold and italic text, hyperlinks, and drag-and-drop inclusion and sizing of images. The Message Editor's toolbar is extensive allowing users to achieve a high degree of customization. A very important feature for R:BASE user is the ability to insert R:BASE variables.

The R:Mail Editor allows you to specify all email header details, like where the message is being sent from, the recipient list (with CC and BCC options), attachments, and the message body.

When you have populated the R:Mail Editor with your specific settings, all of the values can be saved into a template file to be referenced by the R:Mail 11 Plugin, specifically, the new TEMPLATE_NAME parameter.

In instances where you are using R:Mail in a loop, you would continue to use the command file to specify the changing email addresses, and then only use the R:Mail Template Editor to compose the stylish message body. For any variables that need utilized within the message body, those variables can be inserted using the Message Editor.

The R:Mail Editor is an add-on to R:Mail 11, and is sold separately.
