Emailing payslips

Once a pay period has been updated, the associated employee payslips will now be available for emailing.

In order to avail of the email facility, email addresses for the employees and the employer must first be entered in the software. 

Passwords can also be set up for additional security. Password protection is recommended if the recipient is not in a secure environment when they receive their payslip and will ensure that the payslip can only be viewed when the password is entered.


Entering Employee Email Addresses


To enter an employee email address, go to Process Icon no. 1 or Employees > Add/Amend Employees

  • Select the employee

  • Enter the email address to which the employee's payslip will be emailed

  • Enter a password agreed with the employee in order to secure the payslip upon delivery

  • Click Update to save changes


Entering the Employer Email Address


The email utility in Thesaurus Payroll Manager does not use your own email account to send the payslips - instead payslips are sent directly via our Thesaurus email server. An employer email address is therefore required in the software so that the employer can receive a carbon copy of each email sent. 

To enter the employer email address, go to File > Amend Company Details

In addition, the employer email address will be used as the ‘Reply-to’ email address.

If required, a blind carbon copy email address can also be entered.




In the event that you don't wish to receive a carbon copy of each email sent, this feature can be turned off by ticking the box provided:
