To create your mailing list you can easily paste your recipients or import them from a wide variety of sources, such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, other mail programs, CSV or Text files, Excel, databases, etc.

Store any information you want for each recipient. When you import your recipients, all their data is preserved and can be used for filtering and mail merge. You can create your own data fields. In addition to text data, you may also store dates, numbers, currencies, etc.

Or, simply link to your database or other data source. You can manage the list with your database facilities, and AY Mail will pull your up-to-date information when needed.

Grow your mailing list with automatic generation and processing of subscription forms. You can make your subscription forms simple, or you can collect as much data as you want. The forms generated by AY Mail include JavaScript code, which automatically validates user input.
