send mail with Thunderbird and Mailmerge - powerful features

Postby unleash_it » 14. March 2020 20:40

you can run mails within a personalized mode for serial(ized) recipients. - besides lots of comercial products we have the combination of

thunderbird and
mailmerge (addon)

If you want to send a message to multiple recipients, there are a few common problems:

1) When you add the recipients in the To field, the recipients will see each other. (You can work around this problem by adding the recipients in the Bcc field.)
2) Most email providers limit the number of recipients in the To / Cc / Bcc field. (You can work around this problem by creating multiple messages.)
3) You cannot personalize the message. (You cannot work around this problem.)

You can work around some of these problems, but especially the last problem cannot be solved without creating individual messages. Of course there are third party services, that help you to send newsletters; but you have to trust them. Mail Merge solves these problems by creating individual messages for each recipient from a draft message - locally on your computer without the need to trust third party services!


by the wy: you can run mailmerge with the support of excel / calc - based adressdata.

heere are some tips to prepare your Excel spreadsheet for a mail merge. Make sure:
Column names in your spreadsheet match the field names you want to insert in your mail merge. For example, to address readers by their first name in your document, you'll need separate columns for first and last names.
All data to be merged is present in the first sheet of your spreadsheet.
Data entries with percentages, currencies, and postal codes are correctly formatted in the spreadsheet so that Word can properly read their values.
The Excel spreadsheet to be used in the mail merge is stored on your local machine.
Changes or additions to your spreadsheet are completed before it's connected to your mail merge document in Word.

An absolutely essential part of my Thunderbird installation. Straightforward to use, and extremely effective.

Not fancy, but very flexible for customizing fields. Using the CSV option saved me hours of work. Would like to see the email preview in other than HTML though.

Diese Bewertung wurde für eine vorherige Version des Add-ons (6.0.0) abgegeben.

I would love to be able to use variables to insert files directly into the email body.
