April 14, 1998. If youve ever looked at the full headers of
an e-mail message, youll have seen the circuitous route it
travelled before arriving in your mailbox. Normally everything works
just fine, but with every hop along the way you increase the risk
of delays or even the rejection of especially large attachments.
has always included its own e-mail engine designed to connect directly
to the mail server of everyone on your mailing list. But with eMerge
1.5, Galleon Software has introduced the ability to include attachments,
and the guarantee that your file will get where its going.
Barzeski is the editor of Apple Wizards, a popular Macintosh monthly
he delivers by e-mail. I was using eMerge to send out personalized
messages to our subscription list, but when it came time to send
out our e-zine, I was slowed down by Claris Emailer. It took so
long to address the messages and deliver them one at a time.
eMerge 1.5 makes sending attachments quick and easy. eMerge can
open as many as two dozen simultaneous connections to the Internet,
so your message gets out fast. eMerge also has built-in tools to
help you quickly create lists of names, e-mail addresses, and other
variables; or you can import all the information you need from your
current database. Whats more, eMerge 1.5 can also read address
books from the following Macintosh e-mail applications: Claris Emailer,
CTM PowerMail, Eudora, Netscape Communicator, Netscape Navigator,
and Outlook Express.
Menanno is one of the principals of Waves in Motion. He uses eMerge
1.5 to send out updates to his companys FileMaker solutions.
What we like the most about eMerge is its ability to remove
duplicates from our mailing lists. Our database has an entry for
everyone who has, at any time, downloaded our software. Over time,
this database always ends up with duplicate information. With eMerge,
I just dont even worry about it.
is the sort of confidence you need, especially with large mailing
lists. Jeff Gold, for instance, is the President and CEO of FM.Net
and is responsible for managing the Internet chat rooms for over
2,000 radio stations in North America. Weve found that
eMerge is the best way for us to quickly send custom, merged e-mail
containing all the latest news and information applicable to each
of our client stations. And as if thats not enough,
FM.Net will soon be using eMerge to send their biweekly newsletter,
Go Chat!, to the more than 400,000 people around the world who have
registered on their Z.Com chat network.
added support for international character sets in eMerge 1.5 is
certainly popular among Galleon Softwares overseas customers,
but is especially popular right here at home with French Canadian
businesses and Galleons government contacts. eMerge
is the secret weapon I use for our political and government clients,
says William Stratas of Planetcast Presentations, Inc. E-mail
list management is a huge area of opportunity for people who recognize
the benefits of fast and reliable broadcast of time-critical information.
even people with smaller mailing lists can save time and money.
eMerge has helped our news distribution tremendously,
says Graham Murray, a consultant with the state government in California.
We recently asked each person on our 3,000 person mailing
list if they wanted to receive updates by e-mail instead of U.S.
Mail. Nearly 300 said yes! Thats 300 fewer pieces of regular
mail we have to deal with and pay for!
