Remember mail merge? It was one of those great word processing functions back in the day which let you create a customized, personalized document using a mail list.
You can do much the same thing on your Mac with an email address list. Each email message recipient gets a custom email—exactly the same or different than everyone else on the list. All you need is a robotic email postman.
A Sucker For Great Icons
What RoboPostman does is automate email messages to your email address list.
It’s like an email version of the mail merge function found in office word processors.
All you need is a list of email addresses, first and last names, and other pertinent information, and RoboPostman sends out customized, personalized email messages to each person.
RobotPostman’s interface couldn’t be simpler.
Start with Design to create a message. Choose from Plain Text or Styled Text. The latter can be code HTML (experts), or create the style in the message editor below using typical word processing style tools (bold, color, indents, etc.).
Click to add Attachments to the message. Advanced settings include Carbon Copy (Cc), Blind Carbon Copy (Bcc) functions, and an email address for Replies and Bounces.
The real power is in the Address Lists section. Create your own lists of recipients with custom fields for email address, first name, last name, company name—whatever you want.
Email addresses and other information can be imported from Address Book or via text or CSV file.
That makes it easy to use RoboPostman within minutes of installation.
Under the hood (so to speak) are plenty of powerful tools that bring personalized mass emailing features to your Mac. For example, RoboPostman can clear out duplicate email addresses, check for bounced email and flag the list (good for maintaining list integrity), and add other informational variables to the outgoing message.
RoboPostman is one of the least expensive, easiest to use, yet quite powerful mass email apps for the Mac (it runs on Windows, too). You get a message editor and a built-in list manager that’s easy to use and immediately intuitive.
