Did you know that you can easily create and send personalized email newsletters and messages to multiple recipients using Microsoft Word (coupled with Excel)? Although the bulk of the content of the email will be the same, you can customize or personalize parts of the email.
Each message will be a unique email, and you can personalize each one — for example, by addressing each recipient by name. The names and email addresses would come from a data source, like an Excel spreadsheet. Since each email is a separate message, you can use the To: field instead of the Bcc: field! This can make it less likely that your recipient’s email servers will treat the email as spam.
