The feature that sets MaxBulk Mailer above a normal email client like Outlook, Entourage or Mail is its email merge personalization options. You can use the special tags [FullName], [Firstname], [Surname], [Company] and [E-mail Address] in order to customize your message with each of your recipient's data. In addition you can insert the date by using any of the 15 date tags or specific information about the current delivery. These personalization options are accessed both through the 'Tags' pull-down menu and the "Edit | Insert tag" menu. For example, you might start composing a message typing:
Hi [Firstname] [Surname],
Chicago, [Month] [Day], [Year] we are proud to announce...
John will then receive the following:
Hi John Donovan,
Chicago, December 10, 2004 we are proud to announce...
The list below shows the available date tags and what they represent:
Thursday, December 1, 2005
Thu, Dec 1, 2005
[Day of week]
[Week of Year]
[Day of Year]
The internal tags let you insert información about the current delivery:
[Delivery Number] The delivery count, the same number that appear in the Delivery Report. [Recipient Number] The recipient number in the list. [Total Recipients] The total recipient count. [Test Mode] The Test Mode status, 'Yes' or 'No' (Pro only). [List Name] The current list name (Pro only).
MaxBulk Mailer Pro also offers 20 custom Tags named [Opt1] to [Opt20] for email merge. They can be used at your convenience in order to send specific data imported from your database. That is quite handy for software developers who need to send serials, schools who need to send scores to their alumni and so on. You can rename them to something that will make more sense to you like [Address], [Suburb] or whatever. Read the chapter Renaming Optional Tags for more information.
When sending a message with external online pictures you need to make sure you are using absolute URLs everywhere so the recipient software will be able to access the images from the internet. Usually the base URL will always point to the same domain and the path will be likely the same as well. To make that piece of information easier to maintain MaxBulk Mailer allows you to use the [Base href] tag anywhere on your message. The URL for that new tag can be set from the preferences. For example let say your pictures are available on your site 'pictures' folder. Just set the Base href tag to 'http://www.mydomain.com/pictures/'. You can then use URLs such as '[Base href]/mypicture.jpg' in your message.
Tags are allowed in the message body, the signature and the custom headers including the standard headers added through the header editor. MaxBulk Mailer Pro also allows you to insert tags in the message subject of your message, the Cc and the Bcc fields.
