    Hi @Michael Owen ! Thank you for your feedback.

    I have good news for you: we've recently added Mailigen's email marketing capabilities to Pipedrive's roster of features and are working as we speak to make them run seamlessly together. Mailigen allows for very sophisticated email marketing with a friendly user interface, so I suggest you try it out for free here and see how you feel.

    Our group emailing feature was our way of giving users at least a bare-bones, long-awaited way to send email in bulk, but we knew we'd need something sturdier for proper email marketing needs, and here it is now! 

    More good news about this coming up in the following months, so stay tuned. Join our Research and Beta Testing channel here in the Community to be the first to know what we're working on and the chance to test early versions of new or improved features coming up.

    mailgen is just like mail chimp. an email marketing platform that is graphic based with fees based on the number of subscriptions.

    The current bulk mail feature in PD is good. text based with custom merge fields, tracking and auto fill template emails. the problem is the 100 limit and the massive delay with delivery.  the auto merge first and last name function is also annoying but can be worked around with a custom first name field but this does force an additional step when entering contact info.

    The simple fix would be to allow the use of gmail smtp and the ability to select more then 100 recipients .
