in reply to Describe your Dream WebMail App

I need someone to come up with a clever way to send a couple hundred emails that have variations based on recipient's group and some variants for individual recipients. For instance, I want to announce an event, but I want to add some details about my kids to members of family & close friends.

    Great idea - like a "Mail Merge" function?

    Dear <first name> <last name>,

    Blah blah blah.

    Yours truly

      Like a complex merge:

      Hi <person>
      if (person in family)
      Howzit? We are good, the kids are growing.
      How are you?
      <common content>
