My web hosting company is www.1and1.com and they have a policy of allowing only 99 emails to be sent at once. Today I wanted to send an email invitation to 200 photographers for a July 9th presentation on using social media.
How did I get around the stated limit of 99 emails?
I used Outlook 2007 and the mailmerge feature. In the body of my message I inserted the field for “Full Name”. This made each of my 200 email messages unique, not identical.
It turns out that my web host is really only counting identical email messages in their 99 limit. Hopefully this can help you send out email to larger lists, just customize each message. People often enjoy reading their own name in the first sentence of an email because it means that I probably know who they are.Tags: email, mail merge, Outlook 2007
