What email address should I use for outbound?
We recommend either using emails which have already been used in email outreach, or creating brand new email account(s) specifically for outbound, rather than using your personal email address, so that the outbound communication and, for example, email suspensions don’t affect your day-to-day work. The email should be a personal email, rather than a position-based email (such as sales@yourdomain or email@example.com), and it’s best to create such email(s) in the name of a high-level decision maker – it can improve the reply rates!
Where do I connect my email account?
You need to go to Setting → Integrations → Add new email account. If you use Gmail, simply choose Gmail option, and if you use Outlook - choose Outlook. If you use any other email provider - choose OTHER. First, the system will check the setting prepared for your email provider. Read more
How do I connect an Outlook email account?
Due to some Microsoft-specific settings, the Outlook integration will always automatically connect the email you’re currently logged into in Outlook on your device. So in order to connect a different email address to Growbots, you need to either log into this particular email in Outlook first, or use an incognito window.
I’m not using Gmail or Outlook email - what do I need to connect my email to Growbots?
You can integrate all sorts of emails not hosted on Gmail or Outlook, as long as they have active IMAP, SMTP and a valid SSL certificate. While connecting the email, you’ll be asked to provide your IMAP and SMTP ports – if you don’t know them, you should be able to find them in your email provider’s help page. Alternatively, it’s a good idea to reach out to the email provider’s customer support team or to your IT admin. Here we have some of the most common IMAP and SMTP settings: click!
Are there any daily sending limits?
You can set up your daily sending limits for each of your email account connected to Growbots in Settings → Integrations → Email accounts → Actions → Edit Settings.
How many messages should I send daily?
We recommend not to send more than 150 messages a day per one email account. Email providers set a limit of messages that can be sent out within a day (in Gmail it is about 200 messages overall). This aspect is also crucial to protect your domain reputation. Read more
How many email accounts can I connect to my Growbots account?
The number of email accounts that you can connect depends on the type of plan that you have purchased with Growbots - Outreach and All-in-One packages originally have only one email account included, PRO plan has two email accounts per user seat (6 altogether). If you need more email accounts connected, you can upgrade your subscription in Settings -> Billing or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I change my daily sending limits, does it have impact on the running campaigns?
To adjust the running campaigns to the new sending limits, you need to reschedule them. When you change the limit, our platform will ask you if you'd like to reschedule your prospects, which will adjust your timeline with regards to your new sending limits.
If you don't do it that way, you just need to go to My contacts, use the Step -> In progress filter, select all the "In progress" prospects and click on Actions -> Reschedule. Read more
Why did my email get disconnected and how to reconnect it?
Your email can get disconnected from Growbots for a couple of reasons, the most common one being a password change. The other reason could be the fact this email got suspended by the email provider, which is perfectly normal while doing email campaigns. You can reactivate a suspended Gmail account in your Google Admin, and in case you’re using a different email provider – it should be possible in your admin panel or by contacting the email provider. In either case, you can reconnect the email in Settings -> Integrations by clicking the “Reconnect” button or, in some cases, by deleting and re-adding the account.
