Sending email to distribution list

0 pts.

I have a client who wishes to send bulk emails to different customer distribution lists, but they do not want to reveal that it is a bulk email. For instance, they have a West Coast distribution list they want to email, but they want each customer to see only their individual email alias in the 'To' field so it seems they are the only one's receiving the email. Showing the distribution group name in 'To' or using 'BCC' is not an option because they want it to appear more personal. Is this possible withing Outlook/Exchange 2003, or would this require a third party marketing software? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am running Outlook 2003 without exchange and when I send out bulk emails using BCC it arrives showing that recipient is the only recipient. One problem with bulk emails is that your ISPs mail server may block the email because it will think it is spam because there are so many addresses. Work arounds for this are contacting your ISP or using a web email service that allows bulk mailing. I have used Hostway for a group that I am a member and it works well.

    Your client may wish to consider doing a mail merge. It will be a lot of mail going out but each will be individually addresses, and this can lead them to do further customization if they wish. If the mailing list runs into the thousands, however, they will probably want investigate bulk mailers.

    They're better off just using a service co that specializes in bulk emailing. It's a good way to toast your T1 by trying to send out 2000 copies of a 2mb email (4gb...). Not smart cuz most users won't use the delay send option, they just punch "send".
