That gives me a little more me time, and that presents a problem. Once your friends find out you have more free time they’re willing and able to volunteer your services for various and sundry civic organizations.
Enter the famed Mincey Family Values. And a husband who acts as my personal system administrator. The latest project awarded to me by neighbors was to help out with a neighborhood watch program. That meant keeping a contact list of everyone up and down and around the street. Meet HTML Mailer.
It’s the little spam app for Mac users who don’t like spam, but need to send out email by the dozens, hundreds or thousands and don’t want to work too hard.
Setting up your own email list is almost drag and drop. Messages can be created with links, photos, fonts, colors, and, importantly, no coding of HTML (unless you really want to).
Layout tools let you align text, setup grids, use multiple layers, or just wing it with free form layout– but there’s also a bunch of templates to get you started.
Your email designs can be saved and used again with just a few tweaks to make the look appear fresh.
The built-in emailing list manager can pull email addresses from Contacts on your Mac, or import standard comma delimited email lists.
I don’t know of an easier, faster way to create and manage email lists for newsletters, civic groups, schools, even families. There’s not much to not like other than the stigma that comes from knowing you’re entering into the smarmy world of spamming. So, keep your email address lists clean and opt-in only.
