Recipe 8. Mail Merge

Email has long been recognized as a true killer app—and it’s a vital communication tool for workgroups of any size. Although individuals send email all the time, there are situations in which a mass email capability is advantageous, especially where workgroups are concerned. One advantage of a Web–application-based emailer versus individual email clients is that a history of all emails sent is maintained. Another plus is that emails can be sent to dynamically created groups.

The Mail Merge application allows workgroups to search for a group of recipients or to email a series of individuals. If the user chooses to send to a selected group, his email addresses are listed in the BCC field of the email. The email can either be composed of plain text or HTML. The user can even set the priority of the email. The application includes both a master and a detail page of email information for administrators.
