Mail-merging email software spreads its wings.
Back in April, at this years Wakefield Show, Sine Nomine Software introduced ImpEmail. a tool that worked alonside (and was therefore supplied with) their relational database, Impact, to create mail-merged emails.
However, a new version of the module has just been announced, and this version marks the availability of ImpEmail as a separate product.
The software has been tested with the latest version of Powerbase, a shareware database from Derek Haslam, giving users of that software the same versatile mail-merging facilities enjoyed by users of Impact, for producing bulk, personalised emails.
ImpEmail works alongside POPStar and Hermes (which is part of NetFetch, from R-Comp) to transmit the mail-merged emails. The new version, 1.05, supports unauthenticated SMTP, a provision made for users who may not generally use RISC OS for their email needs, and who therefore may not want to set up additional mail transport software.
The new version of ImpEmail continues to be supplied with Impact, but users can download a demo version for use with Powerbase from the Sine Nomine Software website, which is fully functional, but inserts some additional text into each email – to remove this text. the software can be registered for just £10.
