Recipe 8. Mail Merge > End User Recipe: Send Mail

End User Recipe: Send Mail

The Send Mail page is the real workhorse of the application and the only page that includes code for sending email. You’ll find the Send Mail page to be fairly flexible; you can use it to send email to a group selected via the Search User page or enter one or more email addresses manually—or both. Besides fields for the standard From, To, Subject, and Body text, you can also use the Send Mail page to specify the email’s priority, send CCs and BCCs, and even choose between plain and HTML text. There are, however, no HTML formatting tools, so you’ll either need to write the code or perform a Copy HTML operation in Dreamweaver and paste in the code.

If you’re using the Send Mail page in concert with the Search User and Mailing List pages developed earlier in this recipe, the email addresses will be supplied for you. After you select the Send Mail to Group link on the Mailing List page, the Send Mail page appears with the search results displayed in the BCC field. Using the BCC field ensures that no one except the sender will know all the recipient’s addresses.
