Hi there!

What emailing solution (plugin, gem, script) can you suggest for the
following situation:

- mails to a lot of people ("mass" mailing)
- recipients can have 1 or more attachments (various formats)
- attachments are individual files (with individual file names)
- recipients get individual mails (100% individual content, not just
standard text with personalized greetings)

I have found the following script, but it seems to be made for the case
- everybody gets the exact same email
- emails have no attachments

Can you help me with this?

Thanks a lot for any suggestions!

suggest for such a case - thanks a lot!

apparently ar_mailer-batch works well, but i don't know if it will do
what you need it to... you might have to hack it

Thanks, it seems to handle the "mass" part in my problem.

Has anyone an idea how to handle the "individual" mail
content/attachment part?
