View Full Version : I think I need a mass e-mailing program

I work for a marketing company, and one of our clients is the chamber of commerce for a nearby city. On their website, people can request more information about the city. It will soon be my responsibility to send the same HTML e-mail to about 20 people per day. I can't just cc it, b/c the other e-mail addresses need to remain private. Right now, the company's procedure is to manually send each e-mail.

anyone know of any program that would help me?
OS: win xp pro.

Thanks for any ideas. I may just use a macro, if nothing else can work. :(

I know if you use Outlook Express and you put the names in the BCC field they wont show up to others who get the mail.

I know if you use Outlook Express you should be beaten. ;)


Friends don't let friends use Outlook Express.

I found a program called bmail.exe and use it to do basically the same thing. PM me if you want more info. I simply wrote a python script around it, and it does exactly what I want/need of it.

Look at listserv software. Put it on your site and let people sign up for themselves and then you (the admin) can send a mail that will only to to those who signed up.

mailman is what I use on a handful of sites and it handles a 30 person list about as easily as it handles the 60,000 person list.

If it is only that few people, just BCC it in Outlook.

bcc: like most of the other posters have said.

All e-mail programs have this feature.
