Many organizations use Microsoft Access to manage a list of email contacts. In conjunction with Total Access Emailer from FMS, it’s easy to send everyone a personalized email (such as a newsletter, order notification, or even a recipient’s individual invoice or sales receipt) in a convenient and automated way. Handling undeliverable emails and unsubscribe requests, however, can be tricky.
Discover how Total Access Emailer can support a table driven system to continuously send emails from your Microsoft Access application. With an instance of Microsoft Access running Total Access Emailer’s programmatic interface, you can automatically send emails from a table. Create a custom email in your application and simply add it as new record to a table. The email is automatically sent without interrupting your application. Read the article for more information on how easy this is to implement.
