The Campaigns feature in OfficeClip allows you to create and send email campaigns to your contacts, using the bundled HTML editor or Microsoft Word to create campaigns and then send them through OfficeClip Contact Manager.
An editor is provided that can be used to create your newsletter or campaigns. You can even create your campaigns in Microsoft Word and then send it as email in HTML with all the formatting intact!

If you have an email account with SMTP settings then you can use that to send campaigns to all of your users. You can also use your Gmail own account. OfficeClip respects limits that have been set by your SMTP provider. For example, if your provider does not allow sending more than 120 emails per hour then OfficeClip will delay the email transfer so that it complies with the limit.

The filters created in the contact manager module can be used to determine the contacts to whom the emails will be sent. This helps you send different campaigns to different contact groups effortlessly.
Many of our customers create campaigns using Microsoft Word because it offers a rich set of editing options. The problem with sending campaigns directly from Microsoft Word is that the images and graphics do not show up correctly in the recipient's mailbox. This is due to the fact that most email clients block images and styles that are referenced externally.
OfficeClip circumvents this restriction by embedding the images in the HTML file, encoded as hex binary. These embedded images are shown by most email clients.
The Campaigns feature in Contact Management also allows you to track the status of each campaign. OfficeClip shows when the campaign is sent, when it is opened by the recipient (as long as the recipient trusts the sender), and whether it could not be sent. Failed campaigns can be sent again at a later time.
