The Excel Batch-Email Manager sends individual emails to multiple addresses based on lists of email addresses – and related data – on an Excel worksheet.
To get started, all you need is a list of email addresses on a worksheet & the text of the email you want to send.

- Changes to avoid duplicating saved email templates and email accounts in certain cases. There were no visible symptoms of the duplicate saved settings, but they could cause settings to take longer to load. Cleaned up any duplicate orphaned settings.
- Instead of using multiple *.dat files, now back up settings to one settings *.dat file and restore them from one settings *.dat file.
