JungleMail | Activating features

Now that you have installed JungleMail for SharePoint you can start activating its features. Note that, after activating these features, you will only be able to send group emails if all of the web application email settings are correct. If you want to find out more about these settings, read about the subscriptions and tracking configuration, and further customization here.

In this tutorial you will learn how to activate the three core features of JungleMail:

1.  EnovaPoint JungleMail Core
2.  EnovaPoint JungleMail Publishing Web Parts
3.  EnovaPoint JungleMail User Menu
4. Waterfall mode (exclusive to JungleMail Enterprise)


1. EnovaPoint JungleMail Core Feature

This feature creates the JungleMail lists required for JungleMail functionality on a particular site collection.

This is the main feature of JungleMail and should be activated for each site collection on which you are going to use JungleMail. This feature also enables the JungleMail Site Collection Settings.

For site collections which will only be used for tracking tracking link clicks/email opens and for users subscribe/unsubscribe/subscription management activities we recommend to only activate the EnovaPoint JungleMail Publishing Web Parts Feature.

Activating the feature
  1. Log in to the top-level site in the SharePoint site collection using the site collection administrator account.
  2. Go to Settings > Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features.
  3. Locate the “EnovaPoint JungleMail Core” feature and click the Activate button to activate the feature for the entire site collection.

After the activation of this feature, you will notice one document library and some lists have been created on the top-level site in the current site collection. Here you can read more about JungleMail lists and permissions required.

Note: You must repeat these steps for each site collection on which you plan to use JungleMail.

2. EnovaPoint JungleMail Publishing Web Parts Feature

This feature adds JungleMail Tracking and Subscriptions web parts to your web part gallery. Enable this feature on the site collection you are going to place web parts in.

In case you are going to send emails from an internal environment and track external/anonymous user actions, then there is no need to activate this feature on an internal environment. You should activate it on the SharePoint site collection that is accessible by anonymous users, and on which the tracking and subscription management web parts will be placed.

Activating the feature
  1. Log in to the top-level site in the SharePoint site collection using a site collection administrator account.
  2. Go to Settings > Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features.
  3. Locate the “EnovaPoint JungleMail Publishing Web Parts” feature and click the Activate button to activate the feature for the entire site collection.

3. EnovaPoint JungleMail User Menu Feature

This feature enables the JungleMail ribbon button for creating new jobs from lists.

Activating the feature
  1. Log in to the SharePoint site using an account with Manage Web Site permissions.
  2. Go to Settings > Site Settings > Site Actions > Manage Site Features.
  3. Locate the “EnovaPoint JungleMail User Menu” feature and click the Activate button to activate the feature for the current site.

After the activation of this feature you will notice a new ribbon button in the lists and libraries on the current site.

Note: You must repeat these steps for each site on which you are going to use the JungleMail user menu.

4. Waterfall mode (exclusive to Enterprise)

Waterfall mode is recommended for big senders who have a lot of recipients in their contact lists. Using Waterfall mode will speed up the campaigns sending process and enhance all over efficiency of your email communications. It uses multithreading and SQL storage for better campaign performance. We recommend also reading our detailed tutorial for  activating Waterfall mode

Activating multithreading
  1. Go to the Central Administration of your SharePoint Farm.
  2. At the bottom of the page you will find the Multithreaded Email Sending section. Select the number of threads you want to activate.
Activating SQL storage
  1. Open your SharePoint Site Settings. In Site Collection Administration click EnovaPoint JungleMail Settings. 
  2. At the bottom of the page you will find the SQL Database Storage section. Here can enable or disable data storage in a SQL database.

Note: This SharePoint group email product is not a SharePoint WebPart solution. This means that you do not need to place any WebParts on SharePoint pages to send group email campaigns.
