E mail software

Does anyone know of any decent software I can use for sending around 200 e mails for my local group? I'm using Thunderbird but loading the names is tricky and capricious, the template cannot be saved or altered properly, it loses the "Bcc" sometimes and continually drops the connection. Hopefully Freeware.

Re: E mail software

Might be a bit overkill (and it's not free), but I've used this before and found it to work reasonably well. I'm sure somebody will be able to offer a cheaper alternative mind you.

Re: E mail software

If you have MS Office, you could create a mail-merge.

It's probably also possible with OpenOffice (which is open source), but I've never tried it.

You might find something there.
