If you select more than 100 people, you have the ability to choose the first 100... but after that no assistance to select the next 100's after that.

Even the ability to view 100 contact per page so I can select the first 100, send, then next page, select all, etc.

NOT geared up for larger contact databases at all!

    Agreed 100%

     

    It becomes such a pain to send anything over 100 emails

    Thy only hack is to manualy create batches of 100 contacts using batch Notes change (i.e. mailing 100, mailing 200, mailing 300).

    Then filter each batch and send.

    But this is painfull in case of contacts database that is still changing.

    There is one more hack I found now. Add additional filtering to contacts

    After sending first 100 emails this filed is set to current date, so this filters assures to exclude already sent contact and not to send duplicity.

    You can continue with the rest of filtered contacts without manual selection - the only condition is that you have to wait until a batch of 100 emails is sent. Because only then this field is updated with the current date on all 100 contacts.

    So you have to repeat this operation after every 50 minutes (30 secs x 100 emails)
