With the E-Mail Marketing Service (available when you install Business Contact Manager for Outlook), you can create an e-mail marketing list that helps you reach and attract and retain new and existing customers. The E-Mail Marketing Service wizard guides you through the steps needed to set up your e-mail settings, test your e-mail message, and launch your Marketing Campaign.
Note: This is part of the process of creating a distribution list in the E-Mail Marketing Service for your Marketing Campaign, and then tracking the results. Just select E-mail Marketing Service as the distribution method on your Marketing Campaign form. To create a Marketing Campaign, on the Business Contact Manager menu, click Marketing Campaign, and then click New.
