Systems address - This is the main systems email addresses used by the system to CC emails to. For example self registration emails to the finance system will appear to come from this address.
Digest send time - This is the time that the email digests will get sent out daily, the dropdown is in 24hr format. A time can be selected from the dropdowns.
Last digest sent - This is the time that the last digest email sent out by the system, this is crucial if it is believed that the email did not get sent out, as the system will only be able to send out one email per day.
