How to send a bulk mailing by e-mail?
To embed the text in the body of the mail, instead of sending it as attached documents, the following steps are necessary:
- Check for the connection: click ▸ ▸ chose Mail Merge E-mail. Click Test settings to check that the connection is working
For example, the connection might be to port 587 without SSL on smtp.mail.yahoo.com
- Open ▸
- Select the document that will be sent
- Choose the type E-mail message
- Select the address database and if necessary, check that each recipient has a valid address
Complete the following steps.
- Choose Send merged document as E-Mail. The To area indicates E-mail address (if you enter something else, like Name or Surname, the send operation will fail).
- Choose the setting to send an attached file or to insert the text into the body of the e-mail.
Clicking Properties opens a window into which you can enter the text of the message.
- The window that opens allows you to check that all the e-mails have been sent successfully.
