"Group Mail 5 is the easiest program I have ever worked with! I am blown away by how simple it is to use. I do a weekly Newsletter for a high school football team. I use GroupMail to manage a database of 150+ people (parents, players, coaches, students, fans, alumni, relatives of players). I can't believe how quick and easy it is to deliver this now. It used to take 10-20 minutes to send it via Outlook, and I was always 'choking' the SMTP server. Now, it takes about 2-3 minutes, and no failures. The interface is easy to follow - just an outstanding program!"
