Selecting a Guest's Primary Email Address for Communication

Have more questions? Submit a request
If a reservation has more than one email address saved in Guesty, you can choose which address will be used for guest communication by setting it as the primary email address. Follow the instructions below to set the primary email through the Inbox widgets.


To communicate with a guest through the booking channel's messaging platform, choose their proxy email address, which enables the flow of communication between a booking channel's messaging platform and Guesty. To communicate with a guest directly, choose their private email address. Learn how this is applied to Automated Messages.
