  • Save an email to the applicant’s Activity page by clicking “Save Activity“.
  • If EZLynx for Outlook is unable to match the email to an existing applicant,  a “No matching applicants found” message appears. Click “Search” to locate an existing applicant that is missing the email address or if the email came from someone else, like a carrier underwriter.
  • Click the Refresh button to search for an applicant again.

Options when saving an email:

  • Update the applicant’s email address to the sender’s address.
  • Include all attachments OR pick-an-choose which attachments to save.
  • Associate the email with a specific policy.
  • Add the email to an existing discussion.
  • Create a task from the email.

When finished, click Save Activity.

If the email address is associated with multiple accounts, click the double arrow icon.  Now toggle between possible matching applicants to locate the correct account.
