We send out our portfolio projects on completion to relevant press and blogs. The emails tend to be all the same with the only variables being the name and the email address. Ideally id like to write out somthing like this :
Hi **$name**, please see our latest project attached.
Does Gmail have a feature / app / or plugin were you can send templated mailshots / newsletters like that?
(Im aware of Mailchimp ect, but id like it to come from our work address which is on Gmail via google apps, and also Mailchimp blocks you from sending to 'generic' email address, ie. contact@.., press@.. which allot of the press submission email address's are.)
Also just as a bit of background, i dont need to send out thousands of emails, this is just once a month to about 60-70 people.
