Entourage Bulk Mailer Example - How to send (HTML) email to list in Entourage 2004
Version: 1.0I started a little business a couple weeks ago and needed to send out a customer service bulletin. To my surprise, I could not find any good AppleScripts for doing this on OS X.
Operating System: Mac OS X
First, I downloaded a shareware application called "Mailings", couldn't get it to authenticate with my SMTP server, and got no reply from the developer. So, I did not buy it. Then I wrote a script using Mail.app, and it would work for awhile but then tell me that the server rejected my password.
So, for my next bulletin I used Microsoft Entourage and, after some tinkering, got it to work. There are lots of comments in the code, and besides changing my example subject, recipient list and message to yours, you will probably need to do some other tinkering to meet your needs. I t works with Entourage from Office 2004; I do not know whether it will work with earlier verisons of Office. Have fun, and please send me an email if you learn more about it than I did.
