Intelli Innovations Inc. on Thursday announced the release of IntelliMerge 5.0, a major upgrade to their business-oriented e-mail merge software for Mac OS X. IntelliMerge 5.0 costs $99; upgrades from previous releases are $39.
IntelliMerge combines a recipient manager, e-mail composition program that can customize e-mails with tags, and mailing system all in one application. It lets businesses send customized, dynamic messages to their clients.
New in this release of IntelliMerge is the ability to deliver HTML-based e-mail messages using a visual editor like Dreamweaver or GoLive. You upload the template to a Web server and give IntelliMerge the URL — IntelliMerge then sends that page out by e-mail.
An optional AutoSubscriber feature (bundled with IntelliMerge for $179) lets subscribers and mailing list members add or unsubscribe themselves without having to have IntelliMerge open — a PHP script can be added to your Web server.
Also new are a Smart Send Later feature, complete PDF documentation, improvements to the software’s activity log, an integrated tip system, message preflighting and more.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later. IntelliMerge is compatible with Intel and PowerPC-based Macs. AutoSubscriber also requires a Web server with PHP 4.1 or later.
