good day everyone,

i was wondering if there is a simpe way a generic account can send from Outlook a mass email to a costumer list, my main concern is how not to get our Exchange server to be seen as a spamming server or the like. also is there a way to automate this process?

any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.

Hi, have you tried adding all your contacts to a contact group list? Then add the group list in the BCC field and send it off...Maybe add a few test people into a group and see if it works how you intend.

It depends on the version on outlook your using.

In Outlook 2010, if you want to send emails to a large number of people, the best way is to add all the email addresses of the intended recipients into a 'group list'
--> Click contacts then in the ribbon you will see the create group list button

In Outlook 2003, I believe the list is called a 'Distribution List' and it is located in the same place (under contacts)

Once you add all the email addresses to the group list you can compose a message with the group as your recipient. The reason for putting the group/distribution list in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) field is so that all the recipients don't see ALL the other email addresses that you have added to the group/distribution list.

Hope that makes some sense :)
