|Q5: I have configured google mail for sending, why too many emails reported FAIL when send in progress?|
|A5: It seems that you have reached the limit for sending email, maximum 100 per send, and maximum 500 per day, base on this note from google: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&ctx=mail&answer=22839.|
|Q6: Could you please let me know the implementation of email tracking(statistics)?|
A6: To track email opened we have to add an image tracking at the end of the email. This is the best method to implement email tracking. Sometimes you may see that email opened is zero but actually it was read(the image wasn't loaded, so it's uncountable).
To track link clicked, we use our tracking server to record this. After finish recording, that link is redirected to the real one. Sometimes the server has issue, so you always need to TEST your email carefully before sending out.

- Lastly: go to Send your SMS screen to send a text campaign if you want to use Text Center features, if not, you want to use Email Center, please go to Compose your Email to compose an email (or import from HTML, text file...) and go to Send your Email, do SMTP configuration and start sending.
|Q10: What is First Name, Surname, Name in contact list?|
A10: - Nothing to explain if it is created manually :).
- For import from external csv file: First Name is the first name, surname is last name and name is last name (the standard email contact format does not contain full name property so name is populated as last name).
- For import from device contacts: First Name is given name, surname is last name and name is display name (full name), if given name or last name is empty, the default value is set (display name).
