Overview
Send personalized emails with Mail Merge for Gmail™. Each email is unique and tailored to your recipient, so everyone receives your intended message as if it were sent solely to them. The built-in email tracking lets you know when people have read your email message.

The mail merge addon is developed by Google Developer Expert and Google Cloud Champion.

You can use Gmail™ Mail Merge for sending mass emails easily. Whether you're sending holiday greetings, event invites, school assignments, press releases, or email newsletters, Mail Merge has got you covered. You can even schedule birthday messages in advance or reach existing customers with upcoming store offers.

Mail Merge works with Gmail™ and Google Workspace™ accounts. You can send merged emails immediately or use the built-in scheduler and send emails at a later date and time.

Create email templates inside Gmail™ or use the built-in visual HTML editor to create rich text emails using HTML and CSS. Gmail™ now supports media CSS queries in addition to inline CSS styles, making it easy to create beautiful emails. Mail Merge even supports email aliases, so you can send emails on behalf of someone else, like your office secretary.

Mail Merge is actively used by organizations worldwide to send email updates to their remote employees during the COVID-19 crisis. With Mail Merge, you can quickly and easily send personalized messages to your contacts, no matter where they are.

## Mail Merge Features

➩ One-click importing of Google Contacts™ for sending personalized emails
➩ Insert different file attachments for each email recipient.
➩ Included emojis and animated GIF images in the message body and emoji in the subject
➩ Skip sending emails to rows that are hidden in the sheet or filtered.
➩ Upload files from your computer or select existing documents from your Google Drive™
➩ Send merged emails immediately or schedule messages for sending later.
➩ Automatically CC or BCC every email message to your CRM or any other email address.
➩ Send emails on behalf of any other email address that is configured as an alias in Gmail™.
➩ Write your messages in plain text, rich HTML, or use an existing Gmail™ draft as an email template.
➩ No Mail Merge branding included in email footer
➩ Rich text formatting of spreadsheet cells preserved in emails
➩ Automatically create drafts in Gmail™ from Mail Merge
➩ Track your email opens (read receipts) and clicks on links
➩ Add an unsubscribe link to your email campaigns, view unsubscribes report
➩ The email bounced reports show messages that were not delivered
➩ Give your contacts an option to unsubscribe from your mail list
➩ Embed QR Code and Barcode images in email messages
➩ Send a test email to verify your Mail Merge campaign setting before sending the email blast to all recipients
➩ Set the Mail Merge Status column to SKIP if you would like to skip merging certain rows in the current batch.

The email subject line and the message body can be personalized for each recipient. Email messages can also be CC'ed or BCC'ed to one or more people.

You can include different attachments from Google Drive™ for each person and the email messages can be either in plain text or include rich-text (HTML) formatting. You can write the emails in HTML directly inside the Google Spreadsheet™ or you can create a draft message inside your Gmail™ account and use that as a template for Mail Merge.

The Mail Merge program includes optional tracking -it adds a 1x1 tracking image to the message body and if the recipient has enabled image downloads in their email client, the open activity is recorded.

Mail Merge can import Google Contacts™ into the sheet so you don't have to manually type the email addresses of your contacts. If a person has multiple email addresses, the Merge app gets the primary email address and if not available, it gets the Work email or the Home email.

Each message you send out has the same information but certain parts of the email are unique and each person in the mailing list is addressed individually.

## How many emails can I send per day?

All Mail Merge users can send 25 email recipients per day. You can upgrade to Premium Edition https://digitalinspiration.com/buy?sku=GA01 to increase your daily email quota to up to 1500 email recipients per day.

Go to the Google Sheets™ > Extensions > Mail Merge with Attachments > Show Email Quota to know your daily email quota that will be available after you upgrade to Mail Merge Premium. The quota is:

Mail Merge for Gmail™ Accounts - 400
Mail Merge for Google Workspace™ accounts - 1500

Google™ will automatically reset your daily quota around 1 PM PST.

## Attachment Size Limits

For email drafts, the maximum attachment size limit is 15 MB.
For email messages, the maximum file attachment size is 15 MB for Google Workspace™ and Gmail™ accounts.

If you need to insert bigger files with your Gmail™ messages, you should upload the file to Google Drive™, create a shared link and insert that link into your email message body.

## Date and Time Formatting

If you have columns in your Google Spreadsheet™ that contain date and time, you should format the column as text (right-click the entire column, go to Format -> Number -> Plain Text).

Alternatively, use the =TEXT() formula to display the date and time in the desired format.

For the scheduled date column, format it as date and time as described in this tutorial:

we use it on a weekly basis, and its reliable and fast. Very easy to setup. If you keep your draft template in Gmail, be careful not to edit it in your outlook editor as that may corrupt the template. Great work by Digital Inspiration.

this mail merge extension makes my life so much easier than it was before i had it. i've been using it for a couple of years now and i find it super easy to use. my monthly newsletter open rates are typically above 80%, which I credit to this app because it makes my bulk emails look like personal notes that go directly to my readers' inbox (not spam, not promotions). i am so grateful for this service!

Be careful with the renewal. There is no link to cancel in your email. I only subscribed to the 39 USD plan and got renewed at 79 USD. Cannot recommend!

Where were you all my life! This tool has been such a game changer. I have been email marketing for about 4 years now and I wish I would've known about this tool sooner. It doesn't cause bans or delivery issues. This service is top notch. By the way I RARELY leave a review on anything, but this one is definitely worth my time. Thank you
