Guide Review - eMill 4.6 - Email Marketing Software

Whatever your bulk email needs may be, eMill probably is the tool to satisfy them.

It can send rich, personalized email newsletters just as well as receipts or email forms and tracks messages and click-throughs in real time, generating useful statistics. eMill can convert messages to PDF and process results from mailed forms. And of course you can use it to manage your mailing list with incoming mail handling, web forms generation and confirmation messages.

A web interface makes your eMill projects available from anywhere with just a browser.

The more advanced uses of eMill require its built-in scripting language, which is not always trivial. But learning to use the VBScript-based Active Messaging Script (AMS) opens the door to highly personalized and sophisticated projects that integrate the web, your database and other middleware or business logic.

A great emailing workshop, Member labilbe
