Unfortunately, I came upon this giveaway a day late but I still read through the comments because I was interested. After reading through them though I sense it would not be helpful for me. I have found www.maillistmaker.com very helpful for me with my small business and its email marketing needs. Just wanted to share...

maybe works - but i dont need it for strictly personal use, my personal mailing lists have about five-ten addressees. i need something for newspaper sending, but not for personal use (although non-commercial). so i have no reason to test this gotd, sorry...
(btw, i use free mailchimp service now - hadnt be for not very nice "from" field including some strange "through domain xxx.net" statement, i would be very stisfied with it...)

It states "K-ML makes online marketing easier than any other tool".

Then in rights/terms "Strictly for personal use"? How are you to use for your business if only for personal use?

My major concern about whether to install this software arises from what statd by Bigun in post #3:

"There are several problems with this software. The first is you agree to accept “partners’ software”. Another problem is you must know the settings for your e-mail program’s mailing configuration.

“Verification” software is initially installed and supposedly the “verification” software is removed when the computer is rebooted.

You are not told exactly what the partners’ software includes. During the installation process if you click “next” you agree to download and install today’s giveaway program."

Does anyone know and can tell more about:
- what is/does that "verification software
and
- what partners' sofware are being installed
(Any way to prevent that?)

there is no need to ensure male recipients get one email

It is easier in English speaking countries. I will show, that there is a need in e.g. German speaking countries.

The "Dear Mr. Bill Smith" and the "Dear Mrs. Betty Name" can be handled with one $$name$$ replacement.

The same in German language would be:

"Sehr geehrter Herr Müller" and "Sehr geehrte Frau Schmitz", which is simply no longer replacable with just a name.

To go more into details. Even in a serial mailing, I would add the best wishes for birthday, if I see from my database, that this person has birthday around the sent out of a mass mailing... and so on.

Sheesh: I do wish people would undertake some research before making derogatory comments on GAOTD threads. Just for the record:

KC Softwares has been around for 10 years or more. It's based in southern France. It has an excellent reputation and has for some time now offered one of the most ethical download facilities anywhere in the global industry: KC Softwares' website gives a crystal-clear choice between downloading a program with additional bloatware, or downloading it without -- would that all developers were as up-front as that. As to the K-ML mail list manager:

As others have pointed out, if you're not in the business of buying in mailing-lists for mass marketing purposes, then the "group" facility provided as standard under Windows Mail is more than enough. It takes mere moments to populate a list which can always be changed with additions or deletions as and when. As for the listing limit, no problem: fill up Group 1, start a new Group 2. Easy peasy. If you are in business then the K-ML app may well be useful.

Thanks, GAOTD, for the offer and merci, aussi, to KC Softwares.

I am missing a point here:

1. K-ML is a mailing list / newsletter manager. K-ML makes online marketing easier than any other tool.

but:

2. Strictly personal usage.

I have been using this software since v4.3 GAOTD. Bottom line is it WORKS. I hope this version allows for commercial usage, this question was debated the last couple giveaways. Thank you KC and GAOTD - two thumbs up!

If I was a blogger with nothing to sell but my opinions, would consider this GAOTD for strictly personal use. The best of the freebies is .

One caveat about
, it's free up to 6000 emails sent out a month. After that they charge.

Just to clear up a couple of misconceptions regarding today's download, particularly the claim
“Another one of these no-contact, no-address, no-name companies.”
The above in-line one, yet in line 3 ridicules the name.
Can be contacted if you go to the website shown on this page where there are three different contacts links.
Lastly no address, well not exactly true a couple of minutes search took me to the following
http://myip.ms/info/whois/213.186.33.69/k/1687059488/website/kcsoftwares.com
Which is a page full of information about this company, by the way it's from France
A British journalistic level of fact-finding, well it is Sunday :-)

"Windows Live Mail" can make Groups of Contacts, but with a maximum of 50 addresses. If this can do more, it's just what I need. Can it?

For those of you who want to regularly send something to the same few people, you can make a Group (in Windows Live Mail it's called a Category) which will then appear in your Contacts list.

The problem is that, at least in "Windows Live Mail", you can have a maximun of 50 addresses in a Group/Category. If this app allows lists of more than 50 addresses, it would be just what I need. Does it? Anyone know of apps that do? I don't even need the personalization bit--people know it is a single letter going out to many.

Karl- Some companies sent the same mailshot to several recipients, so for some, there is no need to ensure male recipients get one email, recipients aged 30 get a different one, etc - they just have a newsletter they want to send out to 3000 recipients.

Just to answer a 'whats the point' comments raised earlier. If you wanted to send out a newsletter to 3000 people, you used to send it to yourself, then put the 3000 recipient email addresses in the BCC field. This meant no other recipient could know who else the list was sent to - secure and private. To make it more 'personal', software then came along to send a copy to each recipient, one by one. In addition to this, spam filters were detecting the emails sent to one person with many people in the BCC field as spam.

Harry- when you send an email, the email protocol only supports text. When you send someone an email, the data of that file is converted to text - that conversion is called 'encoding' and the format is Base64 (technically, radix-64 representation). Its not entirely the same process, but if you open a .JPG in Notepad, you get text, not a picture, as Notepad doesn't support pictures. Email is the same - the picture (or sound file, or whatever) must be converted to a format that email does support.

In the same way, when you send an email, all of it is plain text. When its sent from your email client to a server to send it to the next server, its a plain-text document. If I got access to one of these servers, its possible to open one of the email documents and see the contents - in fact, thats how many spam filters work - they 'read' these files, see if it contains keywords, (eg, 'Buy Viagra') and mark the email accordingly. I could easily read other peoples emails where I used to work by simply monitoring the email queues. If you encode the whole email, its no longer plain text, and you have to decode it first to read it. Its slightly more secure in that you can't easily read them, but they're not foolproof - base64 isn't a secure encryption algorithm, its simply a conversion from one format to another.

Unless you have to send the same email to many users, then this software isn't much use to you. Another comment mentioned it only sends out plain-text emails, but thats not true - you can create complex HTML emails which this program will happily send out.

One alternative to this is a free service - www.mailchimp.com Can be used by individuals as well as companies. Nothing to download. Nothing to install. Nothing to upgrade. Has many features.

@A. Nuran, KC Softwares has been around forever. Myself and millions have used Video Inspector for years. They have had giveaways here in the past. There was a brief time when some of their freeware had some adware or toolbar in it. I called them out on that here in the reviews and asked if they still did that. They quickly replied and promised that was not something they participated in. You can probable find that comment. I believe it was when they had AVI Toolbox or ID Photo Studio offered here.
As for today's giveaway. I wish I needed the software but currently I have no product or website to send newsletters to mass amounts of people but I will get it just in case I finally get around to using the domain and business idea I've been sitting on for 6 years.
I just wanted to assure you that this is a well known company and their freeware Video Inspector is a must for any who has digital movies or video clips. With all the converters and video tools provided here, its a good product to check the true results of a video you own or created.
PS - There is a cool game giveaway at this site's sister site, game giveaway of the day!

No joke.
Base64 is a group of similar binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data in an ASCII string format by translating it into a radix-64 representation. The term Base64 originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding.

More at - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64

Having said that, I don't understand it either!

@#5 Harry M

Totally agree on that.

Base64 is not encryption -- it's an encoding. It's a way of representing binary data using only printable (text) characters.
While encoding the user name and password with the Base64 algorithm typically makes them unreadable by the naked eye, they are as easily decoded as they are encoded. Security is not the intent of the encoding step. Rather, the intent of the encoding is to encode non-HTTP-compatible characters that may be in the user name or password into those that are HTTP-compatible. http://stackoverflow.com/a/4070709

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

Again a company without names and address. Has some well known other software in their portfolio.

O, those good ol' times!

After program start Win XP comes back, or was it Win98?

A not resizable small window, including a basic editor, a mailing list manager and a maintenance module. Old fashioned working. I am convinced, that the last principle errors have been detected solved in 2004...

The main reason for such a program is the replacement of the name, address, date and some constants in the email text. So called personalization. Everybody should feel, that he is the only direct receiver. This program does this with minimal effort and with plain text file. Old fashioned also in this way.

Today, this way of personalization is not enough. It wasn't enough even ten years ago.

The entry of a text can and should depend of the sex of the receiver, the age, the company profile behind and and and. This demands of a modern text system cannot fulfilled with the today's software.

It is a simple program, for simple text and some automatic replacements. More a good choice for those, who have some friends or colleges, to whom he sends regularly a short note.

So the terms&conditions can easily kept : 3) Strictly personal usage.

Nobody would use this in a professional mailing system.

A good and well tested choice for the mailing list primer. Easy to use and simple. And, most important : simply working...

I have no use of it, but was curious to write a comment.

Have a nice sunday!

There are several problems with this software. The first is you agree to accept “partners' software”. Another problem is you must know the settings for your e-mail program’s mailing configuration.

“Verification” software is initially installed and supposedly the “verification” software is removed when the computer is rebooted.

You are not told exactly what the partners’ software includes. During the installation process if you click “next” you agree to download and install today’s giveaway program.

I have previously downloaded the software. On the plus side of today’s giveaway I have found a that a mailing list for five people that I often send the same software to can be handled as a list rather than enter each of their email addresses when I sent out software to them. Once every week or so I save a few seconds using a mailing list that is generated by this program.

How is Base64 more secure? I only know it as the tool spammers use to get it past some spam filters.
