    Parent Mailings / Mailshots

    Having recently moved to google, its caused admin to get annoyed with me. They mass mailed parents using word / outlook using mail merge and now that the exchange server will be removed shortly they need a new solution.
    Our MIS hasn't the option to do this, any ideas (cheap or free the better)
    I was considering letting them use outlook and tying gmail into it but not sure that would work (I am aware of googles limits which is 2000 mails per day).

    Have you seen the google apps outlook connector would be handy if you did decide to do this.

    Have you looked at something like MailChimp?

    Looked at Mailchimp looks good to me but at the end of the day it's not me using it, I've a meeting with admin on Friday to discuss options, considered the outlook connector but I really want them to move on from it if I can.

    Do you not have a texting service? Most of them offer email messaging as well I know ours did.

    Why can't you just use outlook connecting to Google smtp server.
