Send Personalized mails using Thunderbird

Written by Pavan Kumar on June 21, 2008



And now the time has come to learn this awesome trick as I had promised you in my previous post. I tried to experiment with different mail clients and finally found this way.

thunderbird+mailtweak=personalized mail

The step by step instructions provided here would help you:

1. You need to download thunderbird and install.

2. Download mailtweak extension for thunderbird. Download the extension, don’t click to install on firefox.

3. In thunderbird, goto Tools > Add-ons, click install and select the downloaded .xpi file and install it.

4. You need to restart thunderbird.

5. Again goto add-on window as above and click on mailtweak, click options.

6. In the options window, scroll down to Personalize Messages and check that.

7. You are done a part. To send personalized mail, perform following steps.

8. In thunderbird main window, goto Message > Personalize.

9. Compose your message, and fill the mail ids for which you want to mail to.

10. Click Personalize [send icon is provided, and this is used as an alternative to send option, after clicking that, your mails will be sent.]


You can also include the names of the person you are addressing, just include %%[name_field]%%. For using this feature, you need to have the name included in the address book. For more details, goto the tutorial. Mailtweak has a lot of tweaks which you can learn from mailtweak site.



This method requires much time and bandwidth as a single message is splitted to individual messages which are sent seperately. For better and quick results, you need to use newsletter softwares. If you use/know any good newsletter software, please share in comments.
