The end-user manual for PageSeeder


This document explains how PageSeeder determines who the sender is.

PageSeeder will do the following:

  1. determine which email domain to use
  2. determine which type of email should be sent
  3. select/generate the appropriate email address

Effective email domain

The effective email domain used by PageSeeder for the sender is based on the Template Properties.

PageSeeder will use the first property if it is defined in the template properties:

  1. emailSenderDomain
  2. emailDomain
  3. webSiteAddress


The email domain is often configured to be the same as the website address.

If emailDomain is set to "pshosts", the effective email domain will be based on the host for the default group URI. This is an advanced feature.

Type of sender address

The actual business rule for the sender address is based on the value of notifyFromAddress group property. The default is noreply.

If notifyFromAddress is...Email address used
usermember email address
group[group name]@[domain]
groupReturned[group name]//returned@[domain]
noreply[hash unique to user]--noreply@[domain]

See Group Properties.

Member Address

When the member email address should be used, PageSeeder will use the following:

If the member...Email address used
has an email visible to group membersmember email
has an email but does not disclose itemail_suppressed@[domain]
has no emailno_email@[domain]
