Set the Email Patients Will Receive a Patient Message From

By default, Patient Messages will appear to be sent from "", which can be confusing for patients.

Rest assured, you can change this 'From' address to your clinic's name.

  • By default, emails sent to patients from Ocean on your behalf use "" as the email address that the email has been sent "From".
  • However, you can easily customize this name that appears to recipients by updating the “Email Friendly Name” field in the Admin tab of the Ocean Portal, specifically within the Site Account settings.
  • Clinics that want to customize their “From” email address are required to have their own domain name and the ability to modify DNS records with the domain name registrar. Making this change requires that an SPF record be added indicating that the Ocean email servers are permitted to send email on your domain's behalf.
