    mass mailing (2000 corporate or workgrp)

    We are going to send our 2003 catalog/pricing info to all of our customers. We are in the process of calling to get as many of the email addressses as we can. The file size is about 1212kb. What's the best way to set this up.

    How about sending them a link to a secure portion of your website? Some people may consider it rude to send megabyte-sized e-mail messages. Particularly if these folks travel, it could ruin someone's day. If you can zip it down to about 300K, that might be OK.

    As for the messages, themselves, simply listing all the addresses in the BCC field will send an unpersonalized message. Do you need to personalize them?

    Hey, thanks for the help....some of them might need to be customized....what do you mean by linking to a secure part of our site?

    If the catalog is confidential, you can place it in a folder on your web site that requires a password for access.

    Oops, to finish my thought, you then would tell them the password in the e-mail message, and give them a link to the document, rather than attaching it.
