How to import users from a CSV file in acyMailing component

How to import users from a CSV file (comma-separated values):
Step 1:

The first line of your CSV file should indicate to AcyMailing the name of the fields to import. For example, if your file contains a list of users with the format “email,name,listids”, the first line of your file should be : email,name,listids (always in English). So if you have a file with only e-mail addresses the first line of your file will be : email
remember to always edit your file’s first line so that AcyMailing knows how to import the new users. The following phrases can be used to import to their relevant fields:

  • email- The email adress of the new user in the file
  • name- The name of the new user (AcyMailing can automatically generate a name using the email address)
  • listids- the id number of the list you want the new user to be subscribed to.
  • confirmed- the values should be 0 (for not confirmed) or 1 (for confirmed). If you don’t specify this column in your file, the default value is 0 (not confirmed).
  • html- the values should be 0 (receive Text) or 1 (receive HTML). If you don’t specify this column in your file, the default value is 1 (receive HTML).

Step 2:

After you have edited your CSV file you log into the back end of your site (www.yoursite/administrator.co.za) click on “Components” and then “AcyMailing”

navigate to acymailing
Step 3:

Click on “Users”, its the first item under the toolbar

click on users
Step 4:

In the top right toolbar click on “Import” button

import
Step 5:

In this menu you can select if you would like to Import the users as confirmed etc, and also which list you would like the new users to be imported to. (note: you can do this instead now of doing it in step 1, But the CSV file “MUST” be edited on its first line)
Click on “browse” button

browse

Browse to the location that the edited CSV file is saved and open it. Then click on “Import” button in top right

browse to
Step 6:

A notification will appear informing you of the new users that have been imported from the CSV file.

How to set up your email on BlackBerry

  • Make sure you’ve enabled IMAP in your Gmail account.
  • On your BlackBerry®, navigate to your home screen.
  • Select the icon that lets you set up email (this can be called Setup, Setup Wizard, Email Setup, BlackBerry® Set-up, E-mail settings, or Personal Email Set-up).
  • Follow the setup instructions provided on your device to create a new email account.
  • Be sure to enter the following:

    Mail Server: imap.gmail.com
    Username: [your full Gmail address (username@awesomethatching.co.za]
    Password: [your Google Apps password]
    IMAP Port: 993

  • Allow the system to add your account, but do not enter your Google Apps password into the utility boxes (this causes the system to default to POP3 instead of IMAP).
  • Select Next.
  • Select Next again (bypassing the Additional Information Required section).
  • Select your account type, and then select Next. You may encounter a “We were unable to configure…” error. If so, select I will provide the settings to continue.
  • Select the option that mentions IMAP/POP.
  • Select I will provide the settings…, and then select Next.
  • Select Set up existing email account…
  • Enter your Gmail account information here, with imap.gmail.com as your mail server.

Step 1 – Find your email server

  • outgoing – mail.yourdomain.com
  • incoming – mail.yourdomain.com

In the examples above just replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.

When you set up the first e-mail address under a domain (that is configured to be hosted with us) our system automatically creates the necessary hostnames and MX records that are required to process e-mail for that domain.

Note: If mail.yourdomain.com does not work, an alternative is to use servername.mail.dreamhost.com. You can always check what your mail service is by going to your panel and clicking on Account Status in the upper right-hand corner. Be aware that if you use servername.mail.dreamhost.com rather than mail.yourdomain.com, if your mail server is changed, your mail will break until you change the server name.

Step 2 – Setting up a new account in Mail

Now setup the mail account in Mail.

Open Mail, go to the menu and select File -> Add Account…

  • This will open the account creation assistant.
  • add account

  • Account Type: IMAP
  • Account Description: Some unique description for the account – can be the email address
  • Full Name: Your full name
  • Email Address: Your dreamhost email address
  • Click Continue

    new account

  • Incoming Mail Server: servername.mail.dreamhost.com, where servername is the server name you found in Step 1.
  • User Name: Your dreamhost email address
  • Password: Your dreamhost email password
  • Click Continue

    credentials

  • Outgoing Mail Server: servername.mail.dreamhost.com
  • Use Authentication: Yes
  • User Name: Your dreamhost email address
  • Password: Your dreamhost email password
  • Click Continue

    Review the account settings you have selected.

    Review the account settings you have selected.

    Click Continue

    conclusion

    Import mail if desired.

Finish the setup and you’re set!
