Managing your Email Accounts
In order to use your email account for sending in Woodpecker, you need to connect it to our app and then to one of your free slots. You can continue to add additional email accounts as long as you have free slots which means you can mix them up by activating and deactivating them.

1. How it works
If you wish to add an email account to Woodpecker go to the Settings → Email Accounts tab. In our Quickstart section » you’ll find guidelines for connecting email accounts from the most popular Email Service Providers.
Note: if you do not have any free slots you won’t be able to activate newly added email accounts. You can always deactivate one of the currently active email accounts and replace its slot with a new one. Learn how to add a new slot to your Woodpecker account »
Once you connect your email addresses you can switch their status between Active and Inactive in order to manage them or to add additional ones.
2. How to activate an Email Account
In order to activate your email simply hit a switch button next to it and after that, you’ll see it changing its color to green, which means your email account is now active and available for sending.
Active email account allows you to run a campaign with it and receive incoming emails from your prospects. It is important to keep it active as long as your campaign isn’t marked as ‘Completed’ in order not to miss any response from your recipients.
Keep in mind that you won’t see the activation switch button if you do not have any free slots to which this email account can be connected.
3. How to deactivate an Email Account
Once you’ve finished your campaign using a certain email account you can deactivate it off by clicking on the switch button next to Sending Limit in order to deactivate it and empty the slot for another email address.
Remember that Woodpecker will not track incoming emails for deactivated email accounts. All your current running campaigns using this address will be paused.
Deactivating email accounts gives you the opportunity to add a new email address (or activate another one) without the need to delete an unused one. You can keep them all connected to Woodpecker and toggle between them as you need.
Q: Will I be billed for the email accounts connected to Woodpecker?
