ACS Technologies was recently made aware of significant changes in email security policies instituted by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). These issues are a direct result of major email providers such as Yahoo, Google, AOL, and Earthlink quickly complying with new DMARC security policies instituted by IETF.

As a result of these new policies, we have updated the email options in OnDemand for ACS and PDS. Updates to HeadMaster are coming soon.


When you send e-mails from the People or Financial Suite, you will notice a few changes in the E-mail Editor. Previously, you would enter the Server SMTP setting of for OnDemand. Now, this information is built into the program. By default, the option to use the OnDemand E-mail Server is selected when sending an e-mail.

In the Reply To field, enter the e-mail address your recipients can send a response to. This field is required and must be populated with an e-mail address.

In the Name field, enter the "From" name you want your recipients to see when they receive the e-mail. For example, you may want the e-mail to display "First Baptist Church" or "Pastor Carl." E-mails sent from OnDemand will come from
