How to send mail to a list of addresses?
I am editing a newsletter for an amateur astronomy club ( www.asterism.org ).
I want to send notification to about a hundred members when each new issue
goes online. Some members have subscribed to a Yahoo group which I created for
this purpose, and they get notification via that channel, but others will not
navigate successfully the hurdles that Yahoo imposes. Others do get onto the
Y! group, but then select "no mail" for their delivery option. IOW,
notifications via Y! are not working well.
When I send a single email to more than about 8 or 10 members, the ISP of one
or more of them will reject my message as spam, and sometimes none of the
other people on the copy list don't get my message either when one ISP bounces
My current solution is to query the Membership database (it is in Microsoft
Access) to get a list of current email addresses, then I cut and paste five
addresses at a time into the "Bcc" line in my Outlook Express email client.
This works, but it requires sending about 20 copies of the same email each
month to cover 100 members.
Can anyone suggest a mail handling application that will do this job for me?
Freeware, of course is best, but I am authorized to purchase software if
necessary. The club, however, wants to avoid using any service that will
require a monthly fee.
Only the members who give me their explicit consent go onto my list,
therefore, they definitely don't regard these mailings as spam.
Thank you for your help.
