Voter invitations recognizably from you
Would you like to send voter invitations via your own e-mail server? POLYAS can organize your e-mail server to send the voter invitations and (if you booked them) voter reminders. The e-mails are then clearly recognizable to your voters as having been sent by you.
Please note that this feature is costly, time-consuming, and cannot be booked in Self Service, but only through our Support. It also needs to be coordinated with your IT department, as your e-mail server may need to be configured.
How it works: Invitations from your own e-mail server
We need the following parameters so that we can set up the sending of voter invitations from your own e-mail server:
- The e-mail address to be used to send the message
- The sender to be specified
- The address of the mailbox from which the e-mails are sent
- The username and password of the e-mail account
- The type of encryption
We then coordinate with your IT department to ensure proper implementation.
Better data protection and recognition
The feature makes it apparent to your voters that the e-mails came from you. It also reduces the risk of them ending up in the spam folder. Furthermore, sending the voter invitations from our own e-mail server ensures a high level of data protection, since the personal data of your voters is not processed by POLYAS.
