All information you will enter here is about who the sender of the Blast is.
Here you enter 2 main pieces of information:
- Name - This the name of who the Blast will be sent from. EX: If I enter Hunter Saturn in the name portion, everyone who receives the Blast will see “Hunter Saturn” next to the email address the Blast was sent from. There are no constraints on this field, meaning you can make the name “Hunter & Robbie” if you want to make the Blast appear as if it’s coming from multiple people
- Send From - All recipients of the Blast will see this email as the address the Blast was sent from.
