business-class e-mail merge software for the Mac. Combining a recipient

software, and we’re continuing to offer advanced, easy-to-use features and
tools for our business and organizational customers with IntelliMerge 4.0,”

drag-and-drop specific recipients or lists into a recipient list for
selective mailings.

– Detailed reports after each mailing, including record counts and a mailing
result pie chart.

remotely-hosted images in the body of outgoing messages. The new “Images”
button allows users to specify the location of an image, automatically

status. IntelliMerge 4.0’s improved “Send Now” feature offers easy access

words, allowing users to avoid words that might allow their legitimate
messages to be incorrectly matched as spam by filters.

commonly used functions. Toolbar icons are produced by The Iconfactory.

mailings without bothering customers. Intelli Innovations allows users

sent without delays, flagging individual recipients that experience
connection or address-oriented errors. IntelliMerge’s status indication
