Sending Emails with attachments ?

Postby jdpratt » Thu Jan 05, 2017 6:55 pm

I'm a new stake clerk. Our Stake President would like to send out an email to all members of the stake with an email attachment (nice pdf, not conducive to LCR's send message 'text-only' functionality).... is there a way to do this that anyone is aware of, short of dumping out every email in MLS, exporting a long list of emails as a csv, and trying to blast an email to 3000+/-? email addresses from my own personal email account? I love the functionality of being able to send the messages , but don't want to be trapped by inability to send simple text only.... Any guidance on this?

I'd be cautious about that. It could get you labeled as spammer and lose the account. Especially if members start complaining or marking it as spam.

Assuming it doesn't include private member information (which it probably wouldn't since it's going to such a broad audience), my recommendation would be to put the file on Google Drive, Dropbox, or something similar, and use the Send a Message tool to send a link.
