Alert and notification variables

Mail Security lets you customize notification and alert messages by using variables.

Note:

The percent (%) sign is used to surround variables in the replacement text and email notification boxes. However, when a single percent sign (%) is placed in the text, it is filtered out and does not appear in the email notifications.
