The Send E-mail rule sends the e-mail to:

  • The users and visitors who are member of the access groups selected in the Recipients Groups selection box.
  • The e-mail addresses listed in the Recipients text field.

Before sending out the mails, BizzStream checks whether the e-mail addresses have a valid format (i.e. have a local-part, an @ symbol, and then a case-insensitive domain). If there are no valid e-mail addresses at all, BizzStream creates an error log and continues to execute the next rule in the action (if there is any). In other words, the absence of recipients does not lead to termination of the action.
