    mac bulk email software

    Hi

    I have a mailing list from my own website of 700 people. I would like to send each of them a monthly html newsletter. I am proficient in html but have little knowledge of email software.

    Can someone advise of any software they use on the mac?

    Many thanks

    Before you even consider looking at software options, does your ISP allow you to send bulk mailings through their connection?

    For the most part, user-run tools do not have the deliverability of remotely hosted applications or services. I would suggest you look at vendors like Contact Contact, Aweber and iContact. All are fairly low cost and will handle the sending and management of your lists. Alternatively, there are many simple programs you can run from your web host that will send an HTML/Text message to your list.

    Hi Ted

    Was just going to post a similar thought - maybe its best using a remotley hosted service. I need complete control over the look the email and have loads of questions I need answering so will contact various people. I am guessing the email will say it is sent from whoever I wish, not the company?

    Sorry to be a pain

    thanks

    Yea the email will be sent with your name, not the company you use.
    You'll have full control of how your emails look.

    I have been looking into a few companies too, but haven't settled with any yet.
    Good luck with your search.
