Yes. With Bulk Mailer's built-in WYSIWYG HTML editor, you can easily include
graphics, change font colors, sizes, add tables, and perform a myriad of
functions. You can even spice up your HTML messages by adding fair-sounding
background music or sound.
No, you needn't. Bulk Mailer can automatically send images included in your message
as inline image, which means all images are sent along with your message,
when your recipients open your email, they will see these pictures
immediately without waiting for the email software to download these images
Yes, Bulk Mailer provides a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML
editor to let you create HTML emails. In order to create a new message,
click "New" in the Message tab. You'll see the standard message window. Enter
the message content. You can do it either manually, or open an already existing
file from your computer, open any email template, or use one of the email
templates which you can find in the templates section.
Then you are to fill in the To, From fields, and the Subject line. Click the
button next to the To Field, and select the type of your contact list file
(Contac list, text, Windows Address Book, MS Outlook, or other). Please note,
that if you choose contact list, you'll be able to insert the appropriate fields
into your message, such as name, URL, Company name, and so on. Click Next. Open
your contact list. Click OK.
You can also specify the From field. Click the From button and choose an email
account, or create a new one. Email address may differ from what is specified in
the settings of the program.
Yes. Use your contact list to store more attributes than just names and
email addresses. Attributes can be incorporated as wildcards throughout your
campaign. Bulk Mailer will automatically merge the right attributes for each
contact, so every message is personalized. Bulk Mailer sends its messages directly
to each customer, one at a time, personally and privately. The recipients
only see what they need to see, and they sure don't see the other names on
your mailing list.
The Sending Monitor opens immediately after you click the Start Sending button.
The Sending Monitor shows the total number of messages, number of processed
messages, sent, failed and unsubscribed. The Current Tasks pane shows the Direct
Pool and Queue and Relay Pool and Queue.
There is no short answer to this question. There are many variables that
affect message throughput, and since sending a piece of mail requires that
you communicate with the recipients mail server, some of these variables may
not be under your control at all. Sending email involves at least four
The actual message being sent (size, encoding, etc...)
The speed of the computer creating the mail (CPU, HD subsystem, memory, etc)
The speed and responsiveness of SMTP server which receives the messages
The speed of the Internet connection between your computer and the
recipient's mail server
Each of these variables contributes to the overall speed of the sending. Any
of the variables has the potential to slow the things down to the point
where sending bulk email is absolutely impossible.
Yes. Bulk Mailer's "direct delivery mode" doesn't use your mail server or your
ISP's mail server. Instead, It connects and sends messages to the mail
server of the recipient's address. For instance, a message from [email protected]
is sent directly to mail.aol.com instead of mail.yourdomain.com. This takes
the load off of your mail server and speeds up message sending
significantly. Note: if your ISP(or firewall) blocks TCP port 25.
Yes. Once you've finished sending your email campaign, you can easily resend
the failed emails. Some emails can't get delivered not because the email
address is bad, but because the Internet offers many impassable obstacles:
the recipient's e-mail server may be temporarily down
your ISP may be temporarily down
an Internet segment may be temporarily down
a DNS server may be temporarily down
Resending the failed emails can improve the sending success ratio
In order to re-send unsent emails, select the needed message and click the
Resend button on the task pane. the program will automatically verify the
Internet connection. In the dialog window you'll be able to change the settings.
After choosing the desired sending mode click Start Sending button. Top

send out emails simultaneously in the enterprise edition. Using mutiple
threads to send out emails can speed up message sending. However, If you
have a large number of threads, it can hurt performance while the OS
switches between them , the more threads you have the more memory your app
