You need to use an email marketing tool. I favor MailChimp.com It's free for under 2000 subscribers I believe. Daniel Caplin Sent from my iPhone

As has been pointed out there a lot of options. If you have relatively few (<200) you can even use Microsoft Word's mail merge function. You create a template and it will pull in names and email address from a variety of sources.
MailChimp, PHPList and other services will do the same for different costs.

In my opinion, your primary driver is the number of emails and how often you intend to send them.

There are tools like MailChimp where that task is easy enough to do. If you are emailing users of yours from a website or app, you can use something like Intercom.io do this. Generally, you would need so simple email tool, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some Outlook feature or plugin to allow you to do that.

I’m probably looking at your profile because you are similar to other myBoosters.com clients
To answer your question of quantity, I only send 10-20 emails at a time...

Nick, Easy way is to subscribe to Mailchimp which is free for relatively small lists and does not take long to learn. Their product will do mostly what you want plus a whole lot more, but note that while it is easy to have a personalised Dear xxx, personalising the subject line is more tricky, but you might not want to do that anyway. There are other products with more and better features like Infusionsoft and Office Autopilot, but I would suggest you get your head around Mailchimp first before opening your wallet so that you know what you want before you think about paying. Good luck with it Mark Neild [removed to protect privacy] +44 [removed to protect privacy] [cid:86420D7E-DF03-4A2B-A55C-120E531C0A29@otago.ac.nz] www.coherence-solutions.com
