Mail Manager

Mail List Manager
HedgehogsAlthough this version of Mail Manager is designed to run under DOS, we do also have a Windows version (with an upgrade and data conversion option for existing users) available. Check out the Signet Accounting web site for details about this version.

HedgehogsBeta Mail is a PC based mail list management package which allows you to create and maintain multiple lists of names, addresses and telephone numbers.

HedgehogsIdeally suited to South Africa, Beta Mail will even look up postal and dial codes for you.

HedgehogsBeta Mail can store as many different lists as you have hard disk space! This allows easy management of various lists, for instance: create one list with all your Christmas List, another with all Customers, and yet another with all Debtors.

HedgehogsLists can be combined at any time.

HedgehogsFor each person, Beta Mail stores the following:
  • Title
  • Initials
  • First Names
  • Surname
  • Company Name
  • Postal Address
  • Street Address
  • Telephone Nos (2 Office, 2 Home, Fax)
  • Classes
  • Comments

HedgehogsThe classes in Beta Mail allow you to categorise people according to your own criteria.

HedgehogsFor instance, you may need to know whether they are English or Afrikaans speaking, which region they are in, etc.

HedgehogsWhile editing / viewing entries, you can apply an image (for instance postal code from 2000 to 2999 and language = English). This limits the edit process to only those entries which match your criteria.

HedgehogsThe same applies when you print reports. You can print the lists in various formats including:
  • Mailing Labels
  • Quick Print (one line per name)
  • Mail Merge

HedgehogsThe exact layout of the labels is user defined.

HedgehogsMail merges can be performed using any standard ASCII file.
