Any way to auto replace first word of e-mail in a series of 100 e-mails?

    Sending out the same e-mail message to 100 different people, but I want to customize the e-mail to their first name. Is there any program that you can upload a text list or Excel list to and it will do this automatically and create the e-mails in your drafts folder?

    Don't want to use a online sending service because they put crap at the bottom of the e-mail and recipients know it's automated.

    Want the people to think it's not something automated.

    Also, I know there's a way to schedule delivery of a message for a future date in Apple Mail via Apple Script, but you seem to have to schedule one by one. Any watch to do a batch scheduling?

    Many thanks in advance!

    OpenOffice has a mail merge wizard which also lets you create e-mail message. I don't know if this is integrated with Mail.app though. I'm sure you could try it, since it's free.

    If you know programming, you could probably write an AppleScript to do it pretty easily.

    You mention Excel... do you have MS Office for Mac?

    I thought Word had a mail merge facility that would do this?
