Good program, some issues Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I've used this program for years. It's quite feature-filled and useful.

I use this sparingly, not every day. So sometimes I forget which settings work and which do not. This has led to two high-stress problems for me recently.

First, I always forget how to get attachments to work, and I struggle to format the .csv file correctly. The best luck I've had is to make sure that a double-quote is around every text field in the csv file. But I've had trouble getting even this to work before.

The second problem sent me in a panic earlier today. To my memory, I thought that the default send setting on mail merge was to save everything as a draft that I can review before sending. I realize there's an option to select this, but I thought it was the default, and I ended up sending a bunch of letters I didn't review. This turned out to have fairly bad consequences in this case, actually, and in any event was an unpleasant surprise.

These are really my problems, and shouldn't reflect poorly on the program. But it could be improved by making it more idiot proof: making "save as draft" the default setting and having a simpler way to associate file paths with other data for attachments.

I don't often write a product review, but when I do ... Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

...you can be certain the product has earned it.
MailMerge is a deceptive add-on because it's simplicity to use masks a very feature rich functionality that I have only begun to explore. I have a couple of clients who are going to be even more delighted by MailMerge than I am, if that's possible.

Excellent in every way Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Excellent in every way - functionality, ease of use and documentation.

Been using it with Send Later extension once every month to send 500 to 700 customized emails for more than a year (non-profit purpose) and it has never failed, never crashed. It's actually a pleasure to see it working - merging, queuing and sending emails one by one in a very smooth fashion.

Big thanks to the developer for putting in the time and effort to develop and maintain it. The world is a better place because of people like you.

This extension deserves 10 stars out of 5.

I have got to keep good manners to recipients easily through Mail Merge. Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I have had hard time writing the same email individually.
It took me one hour and above to understand usage.^^; as a novice.

Simple and easy Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It took me about half an hour to figure this out, but it is actually very easy to use with an address book. I just create an email with multiple email addresses as usual and then run Mail Merge and it generates a personalized email for each recipient.

Works great! And great timesaver Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Very happy with this tool. A few things can be a little tricky, but once you understand how to configure your email and merge file, it worked perfectly.

Superb, reliable, solid 5* + Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

We've been using Mail Merge for several years to manage the distribution of press releases - and it has never failed. It's versatile, with conditional processing, and enables us to use csvs exported from spreadhseets of contacts.

It's a superbly well built and useful add-on.

Highly recommened

Update to Version 4.9.1! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Since 2017-08-29 version 4.9.0 is broken on Seamonkey 2.48. The current version 4.9.1 works as fine as the former version 4.8.0. Thanks to the author for his fast reaction.

working with ubuntu (linux), tb 45.8.0 Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

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 Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

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.

Didn't work at first - Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

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!! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

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 ?

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 Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

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.
