Automated LETTER drip-marketing?

I'm currently using ACT! 2009 and I am getting ready to upgrade to ACT! 2010. I like what I've read about Swiftpage/emarketing integration but can't find any clear information on letter drip marketing... so my question is this: Will the new ACT! allow me to set up a predefined LETTER campaign? I would like to have it so that when I change the id/status of a "Prospect" to "Customer" and put in a "Sales Date" anchor... I would like ACT! to automatically print (as an example scenario here) a Thank You letter on day one, a One Month Follow Up letter in 30 days, a Six Month Follow Up letter in 180 days, etc.

 

I understand I can set up an activity series to give me "to do's" on those dates but that just becomes nightmare to keep track of. Ideally I would like to be able to have the automated letter printing included in the email-marketing. Will ACT! do this out of the box? If not, is there an add-on that any one knows of that can help me accomplish this? Thanks!

I've been looking for this exact feature.  Does anyone  know an add on that would trigger a letter to be printed off reather than a e-mail.  Northwood is too expensive and conpletcated.

While I appreciate Northwoods has a cost involved it is really the only tool I have foudn capable of performing the actions you require with ease.

I'm using Northwoods SAM and it works great.  Very stable.  If you need any help with this let me know.  The learning curve is a high but once you understand the system it's easy.
