Symptom

Resolution

There will be times you may want to confirm an email has been sent.  Such as, a new hire has told you they have not gotten the welcome email.  Please review the following tips on the Mail Queue to help you find out:
  1. If an emails have been sent.
  2. When an email was sent.
  3. To whom an email was sent.
  4. Who was CC’ed.
  5. What the email said.
  • Below is a screen shot of the Mail Queue: To navigate to this queue from the main dashboard, click Account Settings --> Mail Queue.  The Mail Queue will present.

  • The time zone defaults to the server (UTC+-7) which is West coast time.  Depending on the time of year it would be PST or PDT.  You may change it to the local (UTC-4).  This will be your local time.  In this case, it is EST.  Remember, the system generally runs on the PST/PDT time.
  • You may sort the work queue by order and ascending/descending.

  • In this example, we have used first and last name.  Note: all the emails in the queue are associated with this new hire.  You will see the name of the notification, the ‘To’ and the ‘CC’.  There is also, a status and a date and time column.

  • If you would like to review the email that was sent, you may double click on the line of the notification.  Or you may click the ‘view’ icon.   A dialog box will present.  It opens on the Main Properties tab.

  • You may review what the email said.  Note: there is a link (Onboarding) in the email but it is not a live link when it is in the mail queue.

  • You may use the Audit Trail icon to review the audit trail for a particular email.

  • You may search the work queue by status.  In the example, we have search for failed emails.   Note: many of the failed emails do not have a “To” email address.  Without an email address in the “To” column, the email will fail; even if there is a “CC” email, the system will not send it. 
  • The other emails failed as those emails are not real emails.  The system tried to send these emails but it could not as there was no one/email to accept them.
