PIMEX MailExpress is a free tool that gives you a powerful and efficient way to reach your customers and contacts via e-mail. It's perfect for individuals or businesses sending out newsletters, business notices and other essential information. Each message can be personalized using a simple text or HTML template, so all addressees will receive letters intended for them only. The program imports lists of e-mail addresses with optional parameters in text or CSV format, generated by PIMEX or other contact manager software.

PIMEX MailExpress is a bulk e-mail program for users who need to send the same (optionally personalized) e-mail to many people (newsletters, announcements, etc.). All you need is a text (flat ASCII) file containing a list of email addresses. This utility is Freeware. It was designed for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista, and requires a SMTP Server (hosted by most Internet Service Providers, or ISP). PIMEX MailExpress will not work with AOL or web based (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) e-mail accounts. However, it will work with Google Mail (Gmail) if you enable POP3 option in your Gmail account.

Click on Settings in the Connection box to fill out the SMTP account and communication settings.
1. SMTP Server: Name or IP address of your outgoing e-mail server (example: mail.spring-mail-1.com). If you do not know what this is then you should contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or network Administrator. You can also check your current e-mail software setup. For Outlook 2003 users you should go to the Tools Menu, E-Mail Accounts, select "View or change existing e-mail accounts", click on Next and then Change. The SMTP Server information can be seen in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) field. In Outlook Express 5 and 6 you should go to Tools Menu, followed by Accounts, Properties then Servers Menu. See the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) field for details. For Netscape Messenger go to Edit Menu, followed by preferences, Mail & Newsgroups then Mail Servers menu. Details are available in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server field.

2. Note: If you are connected to Microsoft Exchange Server, enter its name instead of SMTP Server name; for example: pamail02.pimexonline.local. Under "authentication" enter your Microsoft Exchange Server login parameters - user name and password. If you are not sure what they are, contact your network administrator.

3. Port Number: The value is typically 25 or 465. This can be verified in advanced settings of your current e-mail program.

4. Timeout (s): This is a connection or server reply timeout in seconds. If you click on Test Connection (see below), and connection settings are invalid, MailExpress will timeout and show connection error after this amount of time. Typical value is 30 seconds.

5. SMTP server requires authentication: If your email provider requires you to authenticate your connection before sending messages, you should enable this option and fill out the SMTP User and Password fields. You can check this setting in your current e-mail program.

6. Your E-Mail: The sender's e-mail address

7. Your Name: The sender's full name or a company name (Examples: John Smith, B&C Enterprises)

8. SMTP server requires SSL connection: Check this box if you know that your SMTP server requires encrypted connection (SSL). You can check this setting in advanced options of your current e-mail program.

9. Delay (s): Delay in seconds between messages. You can try sending e-mails with no delay (0), and if you start getting errors after a few e-mails, you should change it to 1 or 2 seconds. This setting depends on how quickly your SMTP Server can process e-mails.

10. Reconnect (msg): This setting determines how many messages the program should send before creating a new fresh connection. Some mail servers have limits on the number of messages they will receive in a session, others may just get slow. For typical dialup users the setting should be kept at 25 or under. For cable or DSL you should be able to push this much higher. This setting may need a bit of tweaking to obtain the best results.

11. Pause (s): Pause in seconds before each reconnection is made. 1 - 5 seconds should be appropriate.

12. One batch of e-mails per session: If your ISP provider has a limit on a number of e-mails you can send in a certain period of time, this option may become handy. For example, if the limit is 100 e-mails per hour, you should check this box and set the number below to 100. After you close this dialog box, Send All Remaining option in the E-Mail window will change to Send Next Batch, and the program will automatically stop each time after 100 e-mails have been sent. Every consequent batch will have to be manually restarted at any time.

13. Batch (msg): This number determines how many e-mails will be sent after you click on Send Next Batch option.

14. To make sure that the settings are valid click on Test Connection. This will allow you to connect to your SMTP server using the settings you have just entered.
