When you create a new account with Wild Apricot, most emails are initially disabled, so that contacts don't receive emails while you set up your account.
No emails – except the Password for new contacts, Forgot password and New administrator emails – will be sent to your contacts. Instead, they will be routed to your organization contact's email address, as specified on your Organization details screen. All manual emails will also be routed to your organization contact.
While emailing is disabled, the emails that would have been sent are still recorded in your email log, allowing you to test and confirm your email setup. Test emails recorded in your email log but not sent to the selected recipients have the phrase [Test mode] added to their subject lines.
When emailing is disabled, a banner notifying you or this will appear at the top of the screen. Once you are ready to enable emailing, click the link within the banner to change your email settings and enable emailing.
Within the Email settings screen that appears, click the Enable emailing button.
Once you enable emailing, you cannot disable it again.
After you click the Enable emailing button, you'll be asked to confirm by clicking the Enable button on the warning screen that appears.
