Emailing from Act 2000

Hi

 

I use Act 2000 and I am trying to send an email via mail merge, with a file attachment, but I do not seem to be able to add a file attachment to the mail merge template. Does anybody know if this is possible using Act 2000?

That was not an option. Attachments could not be added to an email merge.

Thanks Roy

 

At least I can stop trying to do it now! I believe this option is available on Act 2009, is this the only version where it is available, or is it available on an earlier version?

If you upgrade, you would want to get the latest version.

Thanks again. Please could you confirm that you can do an email mail merge via Act 2009. Also could you give me an idea of how much an upgrade would be.

Re: Emailing from Act 2000

Hi

 

I have downloaded Mergemaster pro 3.5, but it doen't seem to be working, at the moment I am using it in evaluation mode. I want to send the email from microsoft outlook, but it keeps referring to internet mail, and an STMP address. Please could you give me some advice on how to solve the problem, also could you give me an idea of how much the programme might cost to buy.

Re: Emailing from Act 2000

It to slow to send bulk emails via Outlook and Outlook chokes - so MergeMaster! only sends directly to your (or your ISPs) mail server via SMTP.

 

I think it would work about about 85 Euro from http://actshop.bevhost.com/Products.php?cat=GLM
