What Is Transactional Email?
A transactional email, or triggered email, is an email sent to a recipient after a specific action. Common types of transactional emails include account creation notifications, password resets, purchase receipts, confirmation emails, welcome emails, and other account notifications. This type of email differs from marketing emails, which are emails typically sent with the purpose of promoting or selling certain products or features. Both marketers and developers both have a hand in the creation of successful transactional emails.
