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 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.

There are two new fields in the E-mail Editor: Reply To and Name.

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

Sending Individual E-mails

When sending an e-mail through an individual's record, you must select the Use SMTP option.


In the Email and Text Setup window, you no longer have to enter the SMTP setting of for OnDemand. This information is now built into the system, and the Email Server displays "Use OnDemand."
