You can use Gmail to perform a mail merge. The advantage of Gmail over Outlook is you can use an Add-on that is free to send different attachments to different recipients and you can also schedule delivery.
Everything you need is free. A Gmail account, chrome, and google sheets which is part of Google Docs. Microsoft Outlook 2016 and previous versions of Outlook allow you to perform a mail merge also, but if you want to send an attachment it is all of nothing. Meaning every recipient gets the same attachments or they don't get any attachments.
Another feature I noticed when doing the mail merge with Gmail is I can even customize the subject line. That is impossible with Outlook.
1. Sign into your Gmail account using Google Chrome.
2. Click on the icon for Google apps in the top right. Go to Drive.
3. When Drive opens up, click on New in the top left and select Google Sheets.
4. Click Add-ons then select Get Add-ons. Type in "mail merge with attachments" and press Enter.
5. It should be the first one. To the right click on Free and select Allow and it will be installed.
6. Click back on Add-ons and now
Thanks for the response. I was actually able to send only 50 emails by using this method. Perhaps it displayed for the premium version for more than 50 emails. And yes we can send 500 emails directly through Gmail.
Hello, how are you? Just wondering if there is a way that we can send an attachment based on its file name? For example, if we have a column in our mail merge google sheet as 'Customer Numbers', and the PDF is named 'Customer number'2016, is there a way we can automatically search that and send the attachment without having to select the PDFS for say 200 customer emails? For example, customer number is 1234, and the PDF file would be 12342016. Can we get that to automatically populate the link based on the file name to send to that customer? Thanks heaps :)
The problem is Google Drive problem. If I have a file named 12342016.pdf and get the link for it, it give me that crazy code. Example: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B84qterereeere333$$$$QOHlxT0k If it gave me https://drive/google/Customers/1234206.pdf with the file name and folder structure, I could get it to probably get it to work with a Concatentate function.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
