Email History

Select the History button from the Email Activities screen to display the Email History screen for the associated account, contact, or activity. The account name, contact name, or activity name and ID number appear at the top of the screen.

(The Email History screen is also available when you select the Emails button from the Contact Search screen and Contact screen, provided the contact has emails available in the list. Otherwise, the Email Activities screen appears.)

This screen lists original instances of messages and any follow-up resends or modifications to the originals.

The text of the message that is highlighted in the grid is displayed in the scrollable text area below the grid.

Note: Only messages that have been sent from OPERA can be displayed in the text area. The text area is not available for imported messages. To see these messages, highlight the message and select the Details button to display the email message in a new browser window.
