System Configuration and Velocity Codes
Velocity Codes are special lines of coding in the Email Templates which pull names, addresses, emails etc. from the 'System Configuration' page.
For example, if you want to change the Signature on all your templates at once, you just need to change the relevant part on the 'System Configuration' page.
To learn more about the System Configuration page, see 'System Configuration'.
