I am contemplating adding email from within/around Access. Since this seems to be a troublesome feature to add myself, I have found thus far the following programs and wonder if anyone might be able to contribute an opinion on any of these products:
1. Total Access Emailer (FMS)
2. idsMail (AssurX)
3. EasyMail (Quicksoft)
The program I am working on, and for which I am considering these, is
a volunteer organization people managment program. Because there is a
certain amount of turnover in the target profile group, I am
employing the KISS strategy in my interface. So, knowing anything
about the simplicity, ease-of-use, robustness, etc (or lack of these
attributes) would be very helpful to me.
Thanks for the forum and the ability to ask this question.
I would like to be able to easily email out schedules, reports, notices of all types. These would go to members, media, sponsors, contributors, as well as maintain contacts between the other clubs in the country. In the interest of simplicity I think I want to progam the emailing in.
For one example, take a monthly schedule of events pertinent to the organization. Besides the ability to print the report or post it to the organization's website, I would like to add the option to press a button and have it mailed to members.
I have no control over the what mail programs will be on the users' machines so Ineed something that easily integrates and doesn't interfere. Plus, I want to mail from within my application, saving the users additional steps. This needs to be simple and problem free as the target group by and large is not technologically savvy
I will visit the link you replied with. Your comments are appreciated.
