I have to send a monthly email newsletter to a number of email addresses.
I have been doing this manually every month, selecting individual email address and pasting message and sending one by one.
I have tried to set up a group to make it quicker but I dont want to display all the email addresses in the interests of privacy to all.
I cant seem to find a way to do this.
I am using windows xp pro and office 2007.microsoft outlook
Any advice would be appreciated.
George

Depending on how many people you are sending to

I usually make groups of email addresses.

One group for AOL,Yahoo, hotmail & msn, Comcast and one for others. Try to limit the amount of people, because it you send too many, you newsletter now becomes SPAM. I send them all Bcc. This way no one get the other persons email address.


Hope this helps.

As mentioned if you send too many at once they can be viewed as spam. While the BCC works well, I have also found that using Word and doing a mail merge to e-mail works well too. You also have the added ability to personalize the e-mail by putting in the person's name and/or business name in the body of the e-mail.

When merged it sends each e-mail individually so it is less likely to look like spam.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
