Can You add an option for email for business owners. For costumers to email directly to the Website instead of a personal email for friends and family? I would rather do this then make Links to P.E.s

Hi there Echo,

Have you thought about adding a contact form to your site? This is a great, professional way for people to contact you from your website without them having to see your email address, it also cuts down on spam email.

Wufoo offers both free and paid options, so you can select the option that is right for you. When someone fills in your form their message will be stored in your Wufoo account and you will receive an email alert to let you know that you have a new message.

You will find the Wufoo widget in the "Forms" folder in the Content sidebar in Yola.

After dragging and dropping a Wufoo widget onto your page in Yola, click on the link in the dialogue box. Then sign up for an account with them if you have not already done so.

Then follow these steps on Wufoo:

1. Select the form you wish to use.
2. Click on save form.
3. The form manager will open up.
4. Click on "Notifications" - enter your details as to where you wish the info to get sent to (ie. your email address).
5. Click on "Save".
6. Click on "Save settings"
7. Click on "Code"
8. Copy the code and then and paste it into the Wufoo widget dialogue box in Yola.

Your Wufoo form will then be embedded on your page and you can begin collecting information from your visitors directly from your website.

If you are wanting to have email that is attached to your email address you can email us at support@yola.com and we can give you more information on this from there.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Your response does not answer my question. What Emmy said is this is exactly what I want to eliminate. I don't want to go to ANOTHER site, and register and keep track on THAT site. It creates a Clutter and more Links/sites to remember. I have enough saved and important links. I already paid for this domain and I am VERY happy with it. Now if Yola extended more options to PAYING costumers, I'd appreciate it more. If people have asked this before, shouldn't they Do something about it? Does it value its costumers concerns enough to do anything about it? Isn't it important to keep up with a certain demand? At the moment, I feel limited. I hope someone does something about it.

If I get another answer like "go to (link/site)" I might as well sign up with them, buy their domain, and refer anyone who is trying to do the same thing to them.

I'm sorry you are feeling sick and tired. At the end of my first response I did tell you that if you wanted more information about email attached to your domain to email us at support@yola.com. Did you see that?

Hey ECHO,

Do you have an EXAMPLE of what you are looking for.
Emailing directly to your site would be more like a forum wouldn't it ??

This is not me trying to sell anything - i dont work for Yola - this is honest advice:

if you buy a domain name for your site you can add as many emails accounts as you like free with google. like admin@example.com or sales@example.com

Or (for free) you could set up a business email with any email provider and use mailto links for customers to reach you.

It will look more proffesional if you are using your own domain mail.

You can get a domain through Yola - then just search 'google standard apps'

Any help you need with this you can get through Yolas support.

Lee.
