Here is my situation:
I have a list of about 1,000 emails that have been gathered over the last few weeks from my website. I gathered these emails on my web host email package. The email package pretty much sucks and will not allow me to easily respond to groups or anything like that. What I am trying to do is send a response to these 1,000 people with an initial greeting from my program. I will probably be getting more emails in the future and will need a solution to handle email. BUT I do not want a program that is a form online. I prefer to have people simply click on an email address on my site, which means they contact me by sending an email - again, no forms...
I am looking for someone who can help me with the following...
(1) get the email addresses of these people who are in my mailbox - an export to excel or word or anything would be great - i Just dont know how to do this
(2) once this is done, advise me on solutions for sending emails to all of them at once.
(3) for future, i might be interested in some type of auto-responder program like aweber, but i don't really think this is that good bc i dont want a form on my site. I assume that folks who email me first have opted into my program. And it appears taht aweber needs some type of optin besides the people emailed me.
I want this to be easy, fast and - to the extent possible - automated
