Mail Merge ist toll Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gott sei Dank habe ich dieses Add-on gefunden und kann damit meinen ganzen Verein mit personalisierten Mails versorgen.

working with ubuntu (linux), tb 45.8.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Attention! With address book you need to insert all email addresses to "To:" manually!

With csv you need a complete CSV-file with first line = header line, eg. First,Last,xmail, .... then you have to insert to "To:" {{xmail}}

I lost a lot time with that, the autor explained it to me by email. :)

Using a German umlaut in a .csv-File Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Concerning the claim that there is no way to use special language characters in a .csv-file: If you change the character set to "Windows-1252" in the 'Mail Merge' window, you can use special characters like ü, ä, ö as well. Excellent add-on, it's saving me tons of time.

Working fine! It's amazing! A real help. Thanks a lot!

Didn't work at first - Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Didn't work the first time I installed. I spent a frustrating couple of hours trying to find MY errors. Removing, restarting the PC and reinstalling fixed it, it would seem, as the same data set worked perfectly afterwards.

Toll!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ich habe Verteilerlisten angelegt, Eine davon hat fast 200 Empfänger, die alle nicht öffentlich erscheinen sollen, also im BCC liegen. Das Versenden der Rundmails an diese Liste funktioniert praktisch genau so unkompliziert, wie das "normaler" Mails. Toll!

У этого расширения есть поддержка русского языка ?
И можно ли при рассылке задавать интервал времени для отправки писем ?

Excellent! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Even accepts variables in the href attribute of links!
With a "send later" option, the addon could be perfect. A must-have for a quite small list and maybe more!

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really appreciate this module, and I use it intensively for mailing to students and colleagues. My typical mailing size is 20, driven by a rather complex CSV configuration file with a dozen of columns. It works perfectly.

I have a suggestion: adding a mean to exclude certain lines of the CSV file to be included in the processing. It could be for instance is some variable is defined. This would enable partial mailing much more easily than today.

Very handy and feature rich but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really handy extension for Thunderbird. Would like an option to reuse a template already designed with the various fields etc without the extension creating a copy of the same template during the mailmerge.

This is particular an issue when you have multiple people doing the processing.

A "must have" addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without this addon I wouldn't be a loyal ThunderBird user, thanks!

absoluteley essential! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Besides lightning and enigmail, Mail Merge is essential to me. It makes adressing multiple recipients (whilst respecting their privacy) so easy, since it doesn't rely only on csv lists any more -- just type multiple adresses in the thunderbird's mail-editor and MM asks what to to. GREAT JOB!

My (small and private funded) mail-provider does not allow more than 10 smtp/submission connections per minute. Any chance MM will support some kind of delay ("limit to sending N mails a minute") in the future?

Can I give 6 stars? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't live without this superb extension.

But lately, I keep getting the warning "The message contains multiple recipients.", whenever a message I send contains multiple recipients.

How do I get rid of this annoyance?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A very clever and reliable extension I use every few months or so. It works perfectly for me and it's usually the first add-on I install on new machines with Thunderbird on them.

As another user pointed out, the ms-dos comma separated format works best.

And there are dozens of variables you can use in your multi-recipient mails which is very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely clever and useful extension, and excellent support from the developer. At the moment (Thunderbird 38.0.1) messages must be composed in html format to keep line breaks, but the issue is being looked at.

use MS-DOS Comma Separated (.csv) format Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tip: If you use Excel, save your CSV as an "MS-DOS Comma Separated (.csv)." Any other of the CSV choice in Excel will fail.

Request: Add a "cancel" feature to the mailmerge process. On those occasions when the CSV file is incorrect, MailMerge hangs, cannot be stopped or closed, and Thunderbird must be force-quit. Quite a pain in the petard. Have a "Cancel" feature that can be invoked during a failing merge would be huge.

Great addon. TIP: CSV files should NOT contain spaces around commas/delimiters Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you Hottie-Doll, for your helpful and detailed review. IT helped me get past the CSV file merge problem that had me stopped for a day.

All I had to do was remove the spaces around the commas (between the fields), and the magic started. Works great.

Thank you to the developer, and pls ignore my long email for help. I will be donating.

Not to ask for the moon now, BUT if we can schedule emails, that would be something. For example, I want to send 5 follow-ups one week apart to my list.

Still, this is one great add-on. Thanks again.
