can I mail merge from act! 2009 the same day rather than overnight

I'm new to act 2009 and someone's told me I have to wait overnight to do a mail merge for my contacts. Is this true? if so, are there plans in later versions to be able to do it the same day?

Hello Nickj,

When running the Mail Merge process in ACT!, it will perform the action at the time you run the mail merge.  If you are using mail merge to send e-mails, they will be created and sent at the time you initiate the mail merge. 

 

There isn't a reason within the ACT! program for waiting until night to send a mail merge, but someone may have recommended it due to a heavy workload on the server during the day.

that's great thanks Greg. I need to mail merge to produce letters rather than emails so I guess they must have got the wrong end the stick. take your point on the emails. if we were sending 50,000 for example I can see this many emails clogging up the email server.

is that for mail merged emails though or mail merge for printing off letters? I thought swiftpage was for email?
