Can VanillaSoft accept webleads through email?

Yes, but the body of the email MUST be in Plain/Text and only contain XML.

When using the XML Email method, your Lead Provider should send it as a plain/text email to the following address: WebLeadID@vanillaleads.com (WebLeadID is a unique number that VanillaSoft generates when you create an Incoming Web Lead Profile in your VanillaSoft project).

We can accept many different XML formats. Here is an example of a valid XML format:

<Lead>

            <firstname>John</ firstname >

            <lastname>Smith</ lastname >

            <workNumber>819-555-4789</workNumber>

            <address></address>

            <city></city>

            <state></state>

            <zip></zip>

</Lead>

Note that VanillaSoft can accept any field names from your Lead Provider, e.g. VanillaSoft allows you to define mappings between your provider's field names and the VanillaSoft fields defined in your project. You must first ask the Lead Provider to supply you with the list of field names they will be sending out. This will allow you to define the proper field mappings in your Incoming Web Leads profile. Once your Incoming Web Lead profile is complete, just send the "Post Link" information to your Web Lead Provider (which includes the unique WebLeadID mentioned earlier).

Caution: When XML data is sent by your Lead Provider, the VanillaSoft mappings will be case sensitive, so make sure the names entered in the VanillaSoft mappings exactly match the XML field names that are being sent to VanillaSoft
