How do I turn off email on invoices?

Hi jking, 

It's possible that you set up the customer's delivery method to email.

Here's how you can check the setup: 

  1. Click Customers from the left menu. 
  2. Select the customer name and click on Edit at the top right corner. 
  3. Click the Payment and billing tab. Set the Preferred delivery method to None.
  4. Click Save.

I've included a screenshot below for reference. 

This should de-select the Send later or email option on your invoices by default.

I hope this gets you what you needed today. Don’t hesitate to post again with any questions. Have a great day!

We put 'MAIL INVOICE' in the Main Email address section for those invoices that are mailed.

How do I turn off email on invoices?

This just happened to me - preferred delivery method was already set to "None". However, when viewing the invoice, the Email Later box was checked even though I never use that feature. Unchecking the box allowed me to void the invoice.

How do I turn off email on invoices?

I Don't think QB is getting what our problem is. I have gone though QB pro 2016 and it still wants to email unmarked customers Statements, even thou they want a paper statement. and if you don't put a proper email in address line the emailing stops the process all together.  Any help would be appreciated. I tried again to talk to QB but all they want is monies. I very tired of QB bugs in their software and does nothing to listen to customers. Been dealing with bugs since 2008 QB Pro.

Hello p moseng,


We are here to help you. 

 

The recommended solution provided in the previous answer is to set the Preferred delivery method to None. If the customer is already in the correct setup, let's run the other solutions to fix this issue. 

 

First solution is to make sure the QuickBooks is on its updated release version. In QuickBooks, click on the Help menu then choose Update QuickBooks. By updating QuickBooks, it helps to install new product solutions for issues like this one.

 

Second one is to repair QuickBooks. Please see this article for the detailed steps: Repair or reinstall Microsoft .NET Framework. It restore QuickBooks' default functionality and remove unwanted behavior. 

 

Go ahead and generate the customer statement again.

 

Let us know if you need anything else.

One silly thing I always forget is to select Save and Close vs. Save and Send.  If you select Save and Send it will require an email.

Other users forgot adding the customer's email too before hitting Save and Send, Jen.

 

Just make sure to add their emails in their Customer Information pages, so they'll flow to the transaction page. This way, you can freely click the Save and Send without any warning.

 

Let us know if there's something that bothers you when creating transactions for your customers.

 

Have a wonderful day!

How do I turn off email on invoices?

I have this same issue,

I have had to resort to entering my own email which wastes time.

I use the web based version so should already be on the latest version, bug fixes etc.

 

so annoying

How do I turn off email on invoices?

In my desktop version, I went to Edit - Preferences - Send Forms - Company Preferences tab - Select "None" from the dropdown menu of the Delivery Method Default field. 

 

Finally, after two years of fighting with it, it is gone.

How do I turn off email on invoices?

Is there a way to turn off all QBO invoice emailing instead of individually through each customer's settings?

We pdf our invoices and e-mail through Outlook to each individual client.  The only way to pdf our invoice properly is to click save/send option then print our color logo pdf invoice there.  I haven't found another way to pdf the invoice with proper formatting other than this.  Which of course sometimes leads to accidental emailing of the invoice.
