Sending emails to the customer is important for customer engagement in the returns process.
12Return supports 3 types of emails:
- System emails: these are sent when users create an account or reset their password.
- Process emails: these are sent when the status of a return changes in the workflow.
- Service Task emails: these are sent when service tasks are used in the settlement process.
System emails have been set up in English by default when your account is created. When you activate multiple languages you need to add content for these languages.
Process emails are not mandatory except the Return Shipping email. By default an English version is created when you create an email template. When you activate multiple languages you need to add content for these languages. You can find the default English process emails in the emails section.

Email custom HTML
For all email templates you can add custom HTML for the email header and body. Custom HTML needs to be added for each language.
When you apply custom HTML make sure that:
