Let's try this again before the robots take over..
Step 1) Go to the account from which you want to send your mass mailing, and press F8 to get the Address Book. In your address book, make a new group of addresses (File | New | Group
). The new group must have a name and a handle. In my case, I have made a group named "Test Addresses", its handle is "TestAdr", and it only contains 3 of my personal e-mail addresses. For now, you could do the same thing and only put a few test addresses in your new group. When you have done that, close the address book.
Step 2) In the main menu of The Bat, go to Tools | Quick Template
. Sel ect the account fr om which you want to send your mass mailing. Then click on "Create a new Quick Template" in the middle. In the big template field you type "Hello there, this is a test message". Below that, in the Name field, you enter "Test Template" and in the Handle field you type "TestTemp". Under 'Use for', you select 'New Messages/Mass Mailing'. Then press OK to save this new quick template.
Step 3) Go back to your address book (F8). In its menu, go to File | New | Mass Mailing Using Template | Test Template (TestTemp)
. Now, you should get a dialog named "Create Mass Mailing". The new Test Template and Account have already been chosen. Under Action, you select "Put in Outbox".
Step 4) Press OK to create the mass mailing!
Step 5) Now go look in the Outbox. There you should find one outgoing message for each individual address in your Test Addresses group! You can send them out for fun, or just delete them.
Step 6) Hopefully this worked well and now you can create a real address book group and a real template, so you can make a real mass mailing (please keep in mind, that internet providers and hosting providers often have limits to the number of messages that you can send out per hour. If you send too many messages, they may stop service to you).
