Previous Topic  Next Topic 



This example demonstrates how to send a Newsletter email to a list of BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) recipients from a simple text file of "Bcc:" recipeints. While the topic of this overall section is importing email addresses and other data from a database for use with NetMailBot, we wanted to include in this "Mass Mailings" topic an example that implements a mass email campaign without the use of database connectivity.
