    Sending emails using campaigns enables Office Accelerator to record and provide you details on who did what and when. A campaign consists of a single email sent to one or more lists of contacts. Any contacts that have unsubscribed or have already received the email from a given campaign are automatically removed. All activities are tracked, including who clicked on your links in the email, opened the email, unsubscribed, and more. An email notification of a contact’s activity is sent to you the moment the activity happens, allowing you to immediately follow up with the contact one-on-one while the contact is potentially interested in your product or service.
