This is a little how to on how to send bulk email using a free Gmail account, Outlook Express and a free email sender program, you can use this to send a newsletter to a list of contacts or to send your marketing emails, there is no limit on your email list.

Interesting hub, this may be helpful for an individual who does freelance work or something and needs to send a couple hundred emails without breaking the bank.

Please take a moment to follow me and review my hub in return, thanks!

Gmail allow only 500 emails a day. If you want send more emails, you must create more account, and send 500 mail on every acount you have.

But now is problem with SMTP IP control.

Using Google as an email service provider is limiting due to CANSPAM laws. Many Email Service Providers (ESP) will mark mass email from Gmail as Spam, and your audience may never see the email.

I would personally recommend using a branded email that ends in (.com, .org, .biz). This gives credibility to the product or service you are offering, and will limit the number of SPAM complaints.

Companies like Constant Contact and Vertical Response, can be used for sending mass email. You can set up templates without using .html or other programming code. I have used both companies for email marketing and appreciate that they do not require a long-term contract. The cost per email can be as inexpensive as $.01 per email sent.

I hope this information is helpful.
