IntelliMerge SQL 1.0 features:
– Integrated campaign/message editor with plain text, styled text, html,
and text/html combination messaging. Using the editor, users can build
messages that are customized to each target recipient using any field
available in their selected data source.
– Instant Preview feature allows users to see the text, html, and source of
a message before mailing, using original data from their database.
– Built-in MySQL and OpenBase database support (no additional drivers or
libraries required). IntelliMerge SQL works directly with the database
server on a record-by-record basis to offer live previews, quickly
generated messages, and instant recipient status updates.
– Query filtering using IntelliMerge SQL’s visual Query Builder, or
optionally enter custom SQL commands for advanced record selection,
multiple table joins, on-the-fly field modification, and other special
– Support for file attachments, embedded multimedia files, and dynamically
generated message headers.

back to the original data source to indicate recipient mailing status,
address validity, bounce notification, and/or specific campaign exclusion.

support, connection backup capabilities, record-based error reporting,
cancellation recovery, SMTP Authentication support, and automatic timeouts.
IntelliMerge SQL can easily handle single campaigns from 10 to 1 million
recipients, and more.

transfer agents, sendmail is pre-installed with OS X), including script
creation, automated message queuing, interactive Terminal-based
configuration commands, and setup instructions for web-based queue
monitoring. IntelliMerge SQL can create “portable mailers” that can be used
to execute pre-merged campaigns on any UNIX-based platform.
– MBOX and message file campaign generation: ready for delivery with custom
mail transfer agents for those who need that capability.
– Bounce Checker: scans any POP3 mailbox for bounced messages, recording
addresses to be flagged in or removed from the target data source.
IntelliMerge SQL’s Bounce Checker can also delete bounced messages after
recording their contents, and fully supports APOP user authentication.
– Included SQL Tools: Data Importer (imports tab-delimited text files into
any data source), MySQL Admin (create and optimize databases and tables on
MySQL-based data sources), and SQL Console (custom SQL command entry and
result browser, drag-and-drop export to Excel or AppleWorks).
