I apologize for not being thorough enough. This was a question asked by one of my collegues and I didn't get much more than the question. I found this website and was just curious if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions.

Outlook is used for sending email, and mass marketing email is spam. The only assistance we provide with spam is helping people to get rid of it. Please see the terms of service for more info, or PM an administrator. This topic is closed.

Let's look into this request a little more.

What information are you after here and what do you hope to accomplish? We're in a grey area at the moment and when the words Mass Marketing come into play the red flags start popping up. There are, indeed, legitimate uses for bulk mailings from Outlook that are used daily by many.

We'll be monitoring this topic closely... :)

I talked to my colleague.

The only thing my colleague wants to do is send a feedback survey to her clients who made purchases from her over the Christmas holiday. The clients on her list have already opted to receive the survey. She wants to send it to them all at once instead of sending them each individually.

No one was looking to spam anyone. If this is still wrong, then please accept my apologies.

Outlook can be used to accomplish that using contact lists...I do believe. I don't use Outlook so we may have to get someone who does answer more specifically. You should be able to set up groups of people that you contact as a group..."Department Heads" in example....or in your case, "Survey"...and email them as a group.

You should be able to find more information within the application's help file on how to do this.

True. But, when you email as a group - it's no longer personalized...and everyone in the "group" can see everyone else's email address once it is sent. There's a way to send it all at one time, but still have that personalized look. I'll keep looking... But, thanks. :)

I know there is software available for doing that, but I don't think it can be done quite that way in Outlook. At least I can't find a way to do it in Outlook 2007.
