Please note: your email client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.) may prompt you with a security warning since you are trying to send an email message using a third party application. For the invoice to be sent out, you should allow Simply Accounting to send the email via your email client.

An e-mail message containing the attached invoice is sent to PostalMethods. The address is extracted from the document; your invoice is printed, folded, inserted, stamped and delivered to the postal agency. You can see your letter being processed in the PostalMethods Control Panel Activity table.

Please Note

  • The email account you are using in order to send the email message to PostalMethods must be defined as an Allowed Email Sender in the PostalMethods Security Settings tab.
  • You can send letters via PostalMethods by using other applications, by using your favorite office application, by using our "Quick Send" web form or by using our advanced Web Services (for developers).
