Do more with MailShot

An update is being released for MailShot users this week, containing a number of new features to make life easier for our users. Here is a little about them, and how you might make use of them.

Place the group’s name in the subject line
Say your golf group is called “St. Margarets U20’s” that name will be placed in the subject line of any email sent to the group, so your contacts can see what the email concerns (you can still edit the title further, if you wish).

Enable “Group Name”, in Settings > Mailshot.

Add a text string at the bottom of each group email.
This text will be added above the signature line on every email you send through MailShot. This is useful to add something like “unsubscribe” instructions, or anything else you don’t want to include in your personal email signature.

Enter the text to use in “Text”, in Settings > Mailshot.  To ask the app to interpret this as HTML (for web links, or formatting) enable “Add as HTML” on Settings > Mailshot.

Place an address in To: when you place a group in Bcc:.
Mailshot can automatically place your own address in the To line of Bcc emails, so it is not left blank (which causes “Undisclosed Recipients” to appear on some email readers.)

Enter your address in “To:” on Settings > Mailshot.

You can also omit contact names  (With a change coming in the following update, this will allow you to also forward email from Outlook). And you can change which character is used between addresses, and to surround email addresses, and whether or not to include a carriage return when copying to clipboard. These tweaks are mainly for rare compatibility cases.

I hope you find these new features useful.
