    So, I've got this long list of potential sponsors for an online campaign. Of course I'd e-mail them. Let's say it's around 100 e-mails that should be sent in a matter of weeks. I'd prefer them sent from my Gmail account, since I'd like the companies to reply there... It would be an offer that's pretty much the same for everyone, I wouldn't have time to personalize it.

    So yeah, it's not much (the number) but I'm afraid Gmail wouldn't like it. I don't want the messages to end up in spam. What should I use? Free, if possible. And no proxies etc, pretty please, never got into that nor I think I'm able. Thanks in advance!

    I did search on BHW, found this thread, currently downloading SendBlaster 2 but I'd like to hear some advice from you guys & say something about my situation. I'm also checking out SendGrid, they have a free plan.

    You can sing up for SendGrid which has a free 12,000 emails/month plan or MailChimp which is free for up to 2000 subscribers. Use excel to create a .csv with the e-mails and make sure to include all kinds of relevant columns (like client specific offers) that you would use in the e-mail with special tags. Import the list and then create a Marketing Campaign and select your list. Then type in your message using the information from your columns as customizable tags in the text that are going to use personalization from you .csv columns. You will need to choose an html template and there will be a signature with your address and company name and an unsubscribe link, but it's still a useful functionality. If you are using SendGrid with a paid plan (as low as $9.95/mo), you should be able to send a plain text message as well, so it will look 100% natural.

    It will all take some fidgeting with the interface if you are not used to it, but you'll be able to send a few hundred automatically personalized e-mails without being flagged as spam (and quite probably save a lot of time).
