Just released, E-Mail Commander 1.1.4 is the latest incarnation of the cross-platform bulk mailing utility from Koingo Software. After two years of development, E-Mail Commander is now used professionally in hundreds of businesses worldwide as a means to deliver important announcements. The current version includes over fifty new features, enhancements, and bug fixes to ensure quick and easy delivery of message content (see below for release notes).
E-Mail Commander can be configured to include information dynamically per-message from the recipient's record in the database (aka mail-merge). Meaning: it is possible to include recipient-relevant information like personal sale history, birthdays, nicknames, customer status, anniversaries, and much more in the body of each message.
Another powerful feature of E-Mail Commander is its ability to send messages in three different formats, or a combination: plain text, WYSIWYG, and html. Not everyone knows HTML, but would like styling in their message such as colors, bolding, and fonts. WYSIWYG is the solution. Visually edit text on screen setting the style and size of the text as desired, and E-Mail Commander will automatically convert it into HTML when the message is ready to be sent.
Ideal for sending press releases, product announcements, seasonal greeting cards, or invitations, E-Mail Commander is free for a 15 day trial. After-which, a US$29.95 registration is required for continued use of the product. Upgrades are always freely available from a purchaser's account on our web site.
