Bulk emailing with the Mach5 mailer


Update: 11th August 2016

Mach5 has been an effective tool for many years but it appears to no longer be under development by its creators and is now increasingly unrelaible. As such we no longer recommend its use. Please see here for our recommended alternatives.




Mach5 is a bulk emailing solution available to all WBS staff. It offers the following advantages:

  • It allows you easily to send mass personalised email - e.g. starting Dear John, rather than Dear Student...
  • It is multi-threaded and so can send large amounts of email without slowing down your computer
  • It can send email in both plain text and HTML formats
  • Following the migration to Live@EDU it will continue to work!
