Hi Guys,

I noticed that all of the confirmation emails in the locale folder have dummy email and a phone number hard coded into them. I wondered how people are working around this. Are you editing the locale fies to put your own info in or are you creating custom templates from the admin section?

I am a little concerned as I have two stores which CANT get mixed up in terms of company name and number in email.  What do I need to change to assure this? Do I have two locale folders (one for each store?) or can I be sure I am covering all email templates using over rides in the admin?

Thanks for your time..

1. Admin > System > Transactional Emails
2. Create emails using default templates for each store.
3. go to Admin > System > Configuration
4. Switch to your store, go over all sections and set correct transactional email templates
5. Repeat #4 for all stores.

For the store logo I think you can use <img src="{{skin url="images/your_logo_file_name.gif" _area=’frontend’}}” alt="Magento" style="margin-bottom:10px;" border="0"/> as long as your logo can be found in skin/default/theme/images/

I would also be very interested in finding out how to accessing the store email addresses programatically.
