    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for someone to build this solution:

    Let's say I have a list of 500 people I want to send emails to. I want to send them one by one from my inbox as opposed to using a mass emailer like mailchimp because I want it to come across as non commercial as possible.

    I have a file with names and addresses. I want to be able to send the messages like so:

    to: [from file]
    subject: xxxxxxxx

    Hi [name from file],

    Message....


    I am comfortable doing this through the gmail client or a desktop client if needed (or the c line honestly). It's a plus for me to track opens, clicks, etc so we'll likely have to include the ability to have a static BCC. I'm comfortable with a bot doing the work if that's the solution.

    Please let me know if you are interested in making such a tool/script, what experience you have, timeframes for completion, and cost. I can answer any questions there are.

    The couple of things I want to avoid with a SendGrip include having to put company address, and also an unsubscribe button. I am looking for the emails to appear to come from an individual, not a subscription list.

    Let me know if I'm mistaken :)
