Send personalized mass emails with Gmail, schedule emails, insert different attachments for each recipient and track email opens.

Send personalized email messages to your contacts with Mail Merge for Gmail. Each e-mail message is unique and, unlike putting email addresses in the CC or BCC fields, each recipient will receive your intended message as if it were sent solely to them. Email tracking will help you know when people have read your email.

You can use Gmail Mail Merge for sending mass emails easily. Send holiday greetings, event invites, school assignments, press releases, schedule birthday messages in advance, create rich email newsletters or reach existing customers with any upcoming offers in your store.

Mail Merge works with Gmail, Google Inbox and G Suite (Google Apps) account. You can send merged emails immediately or use the built-in scheduler for sending emails at a later date and time.

You can compose email templates inside Gmail or use htmlmail.pro to create rich text emails using HTML and CSS. Gmail now supports media CSS queries in addition to inline CSS styles.

Mail Merge supports email aliases so you can send emails on behalf of someone. For instance, your office secretary may perform mail merge but send emails from your own Gmail account.
