Greetings, hiroyuki718 !

You can use Softstack SMTP server.  I am not sure if it will allow you to send to 1000 recipients.  If not allowed, you may need to break it up into smaller groups, like 300-400 recipients.

Best wishes!

The SMTP server from Softstack.com runs on server localhost or 127.0.0.1

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may be blocking your port 25 to all servers other than itself.  Try alternate port 587.

If no joy, ask your ISP tech support if they will open up port 25 to other servers.

Yes, many ISP block port 25 to prevent spam.

Gmail will let you send to 500 recipients per day.  Gmail is webbase and is free.  Get an invite from this other group

Or you can create a Google Group, add your contacts as members.  Make everyone receive by email.  Then you can send to all at once.

hiroyuki,

Here is what Mail Merge mean:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/assistance/HA010349201033.aspx

It helps you form a document, but does not help you send to 1000 recipients.

You can add a secondary address to Gmail and select that in the From field when you send.

If you have a web site, install PHPLIST, a free mailing list script available at

http://www.phplist.com/

This will allow you to send mail to a list of email addresses, this will also provide auto subscription, unsubscription and bounce handling.

hmmm. Do u have your own company email server ? if so use that server to send to all customers.
or other wise where is ur companies email server located (hosted by an ISP ?) if so use your email client to sent to many users. and even u can ask from the ISP regarding the situation
