Can I send Renewal Notices with GroupMail ?

Certainly, using the GroupMail Auto Responder you can send Renewal Notices “Before” an Expiry Date or on the “”Anniversary” of an Expiry Date.

When creating your GroupMail Group, remember to add a “Date Field” to store this Renewal Date for each recipient.
