Email / Compose an email

Compose an email

There are three ways to send an email in the system.

  1. Open the Email workspace. In the top right corner, click Compose.


  1. Open an email you received by clicking it in the list. On the top panel, click Reply or Reply to All. All subsequent emails will be threaded.


  1. If a field of the Email address type is added to an ELMA365 app, you can quickly move to composing an email from an app item’s page. To do that, open an app item page and click send-email-3 next to the email address. In the drop-down list, select ELMA365.


Here you can also select the Default Email Client option to open the email client on your computer and compose your email in it. It is also possible to copy the email address to clipboard.

Any of these three ways to compose an email in ELMA365 will result in opening the Compose window.

Compose window

To create an email, fill out the fields in the Compose window.


  • Subject*. Enter the subject of your email. It will be pre-filled if you clicked the Reply or Reply to All button on an email’s page.
  • To*. Enter the email address you are sending the email to. If you need to send it to several addresses, separate them with spaces or commas. To specify an address from the Contacts app, click Select from contacts. The field will be pre-filled if you clicked the Reply or Reply to All button on an incoming email’s page.
  • Copy. Enter the email address you want to CC your email to. To specify multiple addresses, separate them with spaces or commas. To add an address from the Contacts app, click Select from contacts.
  • Attachments. Click the field and select a file on your computer or drag and drop it into the area to upload it. You can also attach an ELMA365 file. To do that, hover over the upload area, click the three dots that appear on the right, and click Select from the Files Workspace.

Note that when you open received and sent attachments in the system, they are saved to the Files workspace. When you delete an email in the Trash folder, all files attached to it are deleted from the workspace as well.

When you fill out the fields, type your message.

The toolbar includes buttons for quick formatting.

When you finish composing the email, click Send. You can also save your email to the Drafts folder and send it later. To do that, click Cancel and confirm saving the email as a draft.
