Oct 08, 2015

You can configure an email template to send an automatic email to users that lets them know that they can use Citrix Receiver to access their documents and apps. You can also manually send the email to a group of users by providing their email addresses at any time.

The email template includes a link to the site where users can download Receiver. You can also attach a configuration file to the email. The file contains the settings that enable users to configure Receiver on their device.
