This group email software and marketing solution takes the time and effort out of sending email newsletters, announcing new products or services to your customers or running an email marketing campaign. GroupMail puts you in full control of your email communication. It is also ideal for sending updates to customers, organizing local community/sporting events or for simply staying in touch with family and friends. With highly personalized messages, GroupMail Free Edition makes communicating with large lists of recipients easy. Compose and send both HTML and Plain Text format emails, manage an unlimited number of groups and recipients and while there is a 100 recipient per send limit in the Free Edition, you can send multiple batches of 100 to get your message out to larger lists.
We used Groupmail 5 for more than 4 years with no issues.
Groupmail 6 crashes dozens of times a day and TECH SUPPORT HAS NO INTEREST in helping anyone. As a long time customer, you'd think they'd make some minimal effort. Forget this company and find one that at least tries. We're dumping them.
Sad to see what used to be good software turn into the Titanic due to lazy tech support.
The free version now allows up to 500 emails at a time Free for personal use Free of ads (except for one small link at the bottom of the email) Free .html templates with holiday and other themes
This is a powerful, free group email program that works exceptionally well. What's not to like?
I have used this program for over a year without any problems whatsoever to announce news and meetings to our volunteer and interest groups and membership. A typical monthly message consists of about 550 addresses which I send in two batches due to my ISP's limitation. Great program, great price, highly recommended!

The current version limits emails to 100 at a time. This limitation degrades the usefulness of this program so much that we will look for alternatives because the upgrade price is too steep for our little volunteer group.
--Sends individualized emails up to 500 addresses at a time with only a one-line footer stating the message was sent using GroupMail. Sends up to 100 messages at a time if you opt out of the footer. --Other group mail programs restrict you to one group, but this one allows many groups. --Allows import of comma- and tab-delimited address files. --Can use message templates (some provided) or plain text. --These and many other features in a free program! Can't beat that!
The only (minor) irritation is that there is no way to adjust the spacing between paragraphs when using rich text format without editing the html source text.
A great program for a small volunteer organization to stay in touch with its members and to advertise our activities and events, and to make each message personal. Thank you, Infacta, for making it available for free!
I love this product so far. I have a weekly newsletter that I send out to 2 groups of about 250 people. My email provider only lets me send an email to 25 recipients at one time. This worked great for me. My needs are fairly basic and this filled those needs perfectly.
I'm not at all tech savvy but this was easy to set up. I had to go go online for GroupMail's SMTP configuration instructions (whatever they are) but they were easy to find, simple to follow, and worked 1st time. I don't normally sign up just to comment on these sort of things, but I thought GroupMail deserved the effort. its free after all.
None so far.
If you find downloading and configuring software a bit daunting like me, don't worry, go for it, this is OK.
- Sends email to large mailing lists really fast. - You can personalize your email for each recipient. - You can do partial sending, bulk sending and set pauses to control the speed of delivery. - You can import recipients from practically any data source because it supports comma separated value (.csv), .txt and Windows Clipboard imports. - You can use filters to target segments of your mailing list (i.e. Send Where [city] equals [New York], etc.) - Easy "Resend" or "Resume" option. - No product branding or ads in email footer. - Includes 12 free HTML email template designs to use. - You can import your own HTML templates that were designed externally. - Easy, built in WYSIWYG message editor. - Includes mailing list management tools such as merge, purge, copy, move, modify, etc. - You can create any number of email groups/mailing lists. - Very responsive email support. - No annoying pop-ups or time limits normally associated with free versions.
With the Free Edition, it stops sending after 100 recipients. So you either have to create multiple groups of 100 recipients or resume sending to your list after each send.
The Free Edition doesn't include the Subscriber Add-on that allows you to automatically add opt-in email addresses or remove unsubscribes or bounces from your mailing list. That feature only comes installed with the Personal and Business Editions.
Also, Free Edition users don't have access to GroupMail Forms, which is a drag-and-drop form builder. You have to be a full version customer to access that form builder service.
Normally, Free versions of software are full of annoying pop-ups, have expiration periods or so lacking in features that they don't serve any real, practical purpose.
GroupMail Free Edition is very different.
GroupMail Free Edition is a fully functional, use-able version of GroupMail newsletter and email marketing software that is ideal for someone just getting started in email marketing. It will make your group email life so much easier and save you so much time!
Once, again, download.com does its users a disservice by failing to mention anywhere in the program description the fact that what you are obtaining for "free" will only permit emailing to 100 recipients. You don't even find this out until you have spent an hour setting the program up and importing data to create your mailing list, only to find at the last that this software will not help you.
