Is this still true with the latest 4 version - I would like to create an admin page and send out emails to my customers with what events they are subscribe to. I only have around 200 emails at most at one time. I am a little confused on how to filter the recordset though - tried url parameter and that worked but only sent that to 1 customer need to send to multiple customer at one time and display only their info.
Thanks - Can i do this with Webassist or should i look at emailmerge?
For mass email, I would recommend not using Universal Email for a couple of reasons.
One, server companies typically prefer you use the sendmail function from PHP for mass mail rather than using account email protocol which is far more taxing on the server.
Two, Universal Email does not have any way to "throttle" the amount sent.
If you are determined to do this on your own server, Linecraft (help.php) does make a mass email extension that you can define the list based on a recordset and then set the interval for how many emails go out in each burst. I caan confirm that it works decent, but if you want some that works really well and has great tracking, then I would use a service like Mad Mimi (www.madmimi.com/). I swear by them... your emails will look awesome, you will have full reports of how many have read, what links were clicked and by who, and how many bounce. And the pricing is really really good in comparison to other similar providers.
