Bulk Emailing via ACT

We have just acquired ACT as a contact management system. We are wondering if ACT is in itself robust enough to do bulk emailings, say to 2000 + people, or might there be any complications, for example in relation to being interpreted as SPAM.

Yes ACT! can send bulk emails, there is no hard set limit imposed by ACT!, however your ISP may impose a limit of some sort.

The spam interpretation is made by your email ISP and yes, that volume of email would almost certainly be classed a spam. The ACT! email isn't designed for bulk email as each message would be created on the local system and then need to be uploaded to the email server which would be very time consuming. Also because of limitations within Windows itself, you are typically limited to about 100 messages at a time. You need to check out the SwiftPage Email add on for what you want to do. It can directly link to the ACT! database.
