Notes and Tips

Webmail limits attachment file size to 8MB.

Normally Market Leader recommends you email contacts using the Market Leader Admin interface. However, to send a message with an attachment, you must use Webmail because you cannot send attachments from the Admin interface.

To see contact email in Webmail, click on the ShownInCRM folder.

Check Webmail everyday and respond quickly to all emails. When you receive a Webmail from a contact, and it is not in the ShownInCRM folder, that means the From address is not yet associated with the contact. To fix that, copy and paste the From email address into the Contact Summary, so that Market Leader can automatically associate future emails from that address with the contact.
