Email Payslips - Sender Email details not saving

Some instances of CollSoft Payroll may not be saving the sender email details when emailing payslips, this is directly related to the user not having the required access rights to update the windows registry to where these details are saved.

Windows 10 upgrades may cause this issue to arise where it had not done so previously. The issues is where the 'sender info' is not saved and must be entered every time whereas formerly this info would have been saved.
Additionally the recipients do not see the senders email address on the email which may result in the email being categorized as Spam.

Access Rights Issue
Payslip sending details are saved to the registry of the computer. Post Windows upgrade the user account no longer has administrator rights which restricts them from writing to the windows registry, hence the payslip sending details are not saving.

To resolve:

  • Close CollSoft Payroll
  • Right click on the CollSoft Payroll icon on the desktop
  • Select the 'Run as Administrator' option allowing hte payroll program to open. Your Company listing will be blank and there will be no data available to you, this is fine for the purpose of this process.

Selecting 'Run as Administrator'

  • Choose 'Tools' from the Menu bar and choose 'Email Settings' from the dropdown menu.
  • Enter the sender email information for the email payslip function.

Email Settings: Sender Email Address

  • Close out of 'Email Settings'
  • Close CollSoft Payroll.

Next time the payroll is re-opened all company data will be visible.
The email payslip function will operate as it did prior to the Windows 10 upgrade. When the Email Payslips are sent the senders name and email address will be present.
