While you trust Postmark to send your emails, you also rely on our stats and digests to keep you updated on how it’s going. Email sending stats are something that can involve multiple people you’re working with. For a long time you’ve been asking for a way to share digests or server stats with your team members and clients. Now it’s easy to do, just invite them to your Postmark account.
You can manage people in your account on our new Users page. We took the liberty of personalizing them with Gravatar, so you can actually see their faces. Each person can view reports, email activity and receive email digests. They don’t have access to the account section, sender signatures, server settings or credentials. Those sections are accessible for only the owner.
Also don’t miss the new Permissions tab on the server page. To make permission management really simple we allow you to configure users access both per person and per server. When you give people access to a server for the first time, they will receive an email notification about the new server available to them.
To bring this all to life we had to switch our authentication system to use usernames. This way one person could belong to more than one account. If you’re an existing Postmark user, your email has become your username. You can change your username in your profile at anytime if need.
A few more notes on usernames and email addresses:
- A username should be unique Postmark-wide.
- Emails should be unique Account-wide.
- You can own only a single account using a single email address.
This is a big update for Postmark and we would really love to hear your feedback. If you have any questions please leave a comment below or contact support.
