I would like the TO field to include the Job Title so that it reads: "John Smith, Candlestick Maker" < firstname.lastname@example.org >
Is this possible in a template? I would like to produce mass mailings in this manner.
Of course, it is (or it was) possible using Address Book macros. I do not know what version of The Bat! you use, because in 10.3 these macros does not work. I have submitted the bug description to developers, so we must wait. In earlier versions these macros were operating.
To build the requested TO filed you should use the following line in your mass mailing template:
%To=""%To='"%ABToName, %ABToJob" <%ABToEmail>'
Maybe it will work in your version of the program.
If you're good with a text editor (or spreadsheet software?), an alternative solution might be to export the address book to a text file, append the job title and company fields to the Name field, then import it back into the address book.

After many attempts, I have the solution of problem, simply by using another form of macro to modify the "TO" field. The following line placed in the template gives correct results:
