I don’t get it…

I installed it, created an account. sent test emails which according to their website was sent (but using magento default templates????) Can i switch the default magento off?

How do i configure emails using mandrill or do i use mail chimp. In the tutorial Matt said there was a later tutorial for this. Has this been recorded yet?

Hi Nick,

We haven’t done the follow up guides for this yet, these are part of the order management course that we have yet to finalise along with the Moogento guides.

This seems weird, have you tried contacting mandrill to make sure everything is going through ok at their end?

Hi Dave,

I’ve figured it out now. Mandrill is just a tool for sending the emails rather than configuring the transactional ones. they seem to be coming through ok now.

When do the moogento tutorials come out? They will be ver useful.

Also is there any way to configure the other emails like password resets, welcome mails when they register etc?

Ah, happy days

As for the Moogento guides they are one of the stripes we have left to complete along with website and amazon guides. I imagine we will try to get them done once the website is complete and we can liase with Jim to fin a suitable time for us all to get the recordings done.

Hi nickfessi,

The selection of email templates for users are under the menu “System > Configuration > Customer Configuration” You can then see menu sets for “Create new account options” and “Password options” ~ Under these menus you have options to set the email templates you want for registration, password reset, etc…

As to actually editing and creating the templates, Matt and Dave have made a decent 2 part video guide on the theory and how to create and set email templates for the customer order process;

Setting your templates is a very similar process.

Hope this helps.

Cheers Ginge, I found them just after i posted. Just as i thought i was nearly finished more tings to configure haha

Do you know any way of using mail chimp to customise these or be able to get the html from ones created in mail chimp?

The default ones i fond are quite limited without the knowledge of html

Unfortunately I have no experience with mailchimp.

Did you install the WYSIWYG editor for email templates, as per Matt’s video? that should help a bit.

Also there are several free HTML email template builders out there, which may be helpful to you;

You would need to copy in the key words from your original templates.

Yeah i installed the WYSIWYG. I found a few issues with it. When trying to do a new account template. once you click the WSIWYG and then do preview. Half the text gets chopped out for whatever reason. Had to open a new tab and load the template as new and copy over the missing html code. It didn’t happen after that.

but a html email template sounds perfect, i have been searching for some and trying a few out
