eMill has been designed to be completely adapted to project management. It lets
you organize and save your work according to project milestones. A typical project
is started at the design stage where you can create the message contents, scripts
and distribution lists. After these tasks are completed, the project is published
and in standby for review.
eMill features a built-in editor that lets you create the message body
in the two formats supported by Internet mail clients: HTML and Text.
The editor generates all the common html tags required to easily achieve
appealing layouts. The content editor also provides you with powerful
server-side scripting functions, easily included and edited from the
source display mode. Similar to Active Server Page (ASP) scripting
language, these embedded scripts let you customize your contents without
eMill uses global scripts to customize any events that occurs in the
software. Global scripts are generated through the project wizards
and may be modified using the integrated script editor. Users familiar
with VBScript can directly edit the mailing project global script to
further customize the mailing project. Samples of global scripts are
provided and available to users not familiar with VBScript.
eMill supports SQL queries to let you quickly create distribution
lists from outside database records (data source). You can also
import most database formats found on corporate, office or personal
systems. The editor lets you touch up imported records and / or allows
you to start and edit new lists.
This component merges together all the files used for building the
project, and saves an image that will be used to process the email
files. Once a project is published, it is in a delivery pending status
and cannot be edited. Modifications need to be made from the
pre-published files, and the project published again.
This component performs the mail merge and produces ready to send
emails in the Outbox folders.
This component performs the email delivery. Emails may be delivered
directly or relayed to multiple SMTP relay servers for large scale
