Sometimes you need to receive an alert/notification, on your phone/tablet, if a specific email reaches your email box, it can be an alarm, a report, a specific order information, ...

To achieve this, we have chosen to work with Pushover, a third party service which works very well and is simple to use:

It works on Android, iPhone & iPad, and desktop browser client, you can receive unlimited push notifications on all of your devices from Automatic Email Manager.


How does it work?

  1. Install the PushOver app on your iPhone/iPad or Android device or register your Desktop browser.
  2. Launch the app and it will walk you through creating a Pushover account and registering your device.
  3. You'll get a new User Key e-mailed to you (which you can always find on your Pushover dashboard). Your User Key is a randomly generated identifier which allows Automatic Email Manager to send Pushover notifications to your devices.
  4. Copy and paste your User Key into Automatic Email Manager and it will instantly be able to start sending notifications to your devices.


The cost is very simple

  • + Free from Automatic Email Manager, 
  • + To use the app on your phone you have to buy the Pushover application, it's just a $5 USD one-time purchase on each platform (iPhone/iPad, Android, and Desktop) where you want to receive Pushover notifications.
