GroupMail has tons of features to help you create an effective email campaign. To begin, just select your server type, either DNS or SMTP, then the program wizard will quickly guide you through the set up process.
You can make your email list manually by entering each name or import them from an Excel spreadsheet. Both GroupMail Standard and the Professional version are equipped to handle a list of unlimited email addresses.

Group Mail offers four versions... Free, personal and business and marketing. Download and try the Free version to test the software. If you have a very small mailing list, the free version may be adequate, but it lacks the advance feature that makes Group Mail stand out above the competition

Price and Purchase information


Four important feature which are missing in Free Edition:

  • Does not Works With Popular Address Books
  • Cannot handle Automated Subscription and Bounce Handling
  • 3rd Party Database Integration is not available
  • No Real-Time Analytics, Click Tracking & Open Rates
My Personal Experience:

For 99% of users, Group Mail will servemore than handle all their email newsletter needs. This software has saved countless hours on business’s email newsletter maintenance. The software easily subscribes new recipients (or they can be directly imported from any current database in minutes), remove insubscribes, deletes spam email addresses and even allows you to write messages in the program with the help of a free plug-in. Its logs system is also amazing, you can see how many succeeded, failed, and how many unsubscribed members you have.
Not only that, but Group Mail sends two-part MIME messages so you don't have to worry about whether or not your readers have capablity to handle HTML emails. If they can't, they'll redirected to text version automatically! This is a very useful feature for anyone who’s serious about their mailing list. It’s much easier than managing two separate email lists: one for HTML and one for text only.
You may be thinking that the program must be overly complex to contain all these features. But surprisingly Group Mail is easy to install and even easier to learn. It’s comprehensive, easy-to-use interface had make emailing in minutes! I didn’t have to read one page of the documents. It’s simple -- just set up a sender, an email list, and create an email!
Some Cons:Well after using Groupmail for long time only problem I can see is you must install Groupmail on a local PC, so you can't used it elsewhere.While sending mails or newsletter to thousand of users , your PC may slowdown a bit, so best time to use it at night when you don't have any other work on PC.
Group Mail has won so many awards a few are ZDNet Editor’s Pick, Freeware Guide’s Program of the Month, Cool Tool Award and Tucows 5x Cows Award. You can see a lot of awards and testimonial at their site.So it seems I am not only love this product.

Latest news

Is GroupMail available for Mac Users?


Unfortunately GroupMail do not have a native version of GroupMail available for the Mac platform at the moment. However - all is not lost!
If you are running a Power PC based Mac (OS 9 or OS X) then you can run GroupMail via a Windows Emulator like Virtual PC. If you are Group Mail will run on a Mac as long as you have a Windows Emulator such as Virtual PC installed. More information on Virtual PC can be found here.
If you using an Intel based Mac then unfortunately Virtual PC isn’t an option for you (yet). However, there is a better solution and it’s called Parallels and it’s fantastic (I used it myself on my new shiny macbook). Find out more about Parallels here.
Please note that both of these solutions will require you to install a copy of Windows. It is highly recommend Windows XP at the moment. It’s not as resource hungry and works well under emulation. The latest version of Parallels offers some very sweet integration with OS X and makes running Windows Apps on the Mac a doddle. Every Mac user should get this software.
