Bulk Email is a utility to send attractive email to groups of recipients while keeping within anti-spamming laws and your mail server limits.
Preparing a Bulk Email involves two processes — building the list of client emails and building the eMail-merge Template. Once these processes are complete the email will be ready to send:
1) Paste your list of emails into the field.
2) Click the Parse button. Your emails will be checked for errors — correct emails will be checked ready to send, invalid emails will be unchecked.
3) Click the Template button. Enter your Email Subject and Server details.
4) Click the Body HTML tab. Choose the Email Sample you want, then edit the HTML to show the text and links you want to appear.
5) Click the Groups Tab. Set the email limits to be well below your email server provider`s limits.
6) Click the Test button to send an email to yourself to verify its accuracy.
7) Click the Send button to send a copy of the email to all your checked recipients.
