Hi Team

I have to do a major mail-out to clients and planned to use the BCC format to do it all in one hit, but I have hit a snag.

Most clients have a personalised address such as raquel.welch@company.co.nz but quite a few have generic adresses such as admin@company.co.nz and for those I normally put the recipient's name in the subject line to personalise them.

Is there any way I can insert recipients' names to personalise the admin@ messages while maintaining the omnibus BCC mail out, or will I have to send all of the generic addresses individually and just use the Subject line?

Mail program is Outlook 2000, I have searched the Outlook help files and the web but came up with a big fat nothing.

What you want to do is akin to a "mail merge", which is a bit beyond a plain email client such as OL I believe.

And really! Asking for help to send out spam, and all while Bathurst is televised live! :)

The real spammers probably have the tools....

Sorry Godfather :8}

It is not really spam, I'm sure they will be pleased to receive it.

Bugger about the mail merge, I guess I'll just have to send those individually.

Never mind though, Raquel will get hers delivered personally.:D
