Connecting to a LAN Database

JangoMail can connect to the following types of databases on an individual PC or a Local Area Network:

 

  • Any ODBC compliant database
  • Microsoft Access
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Goldmine
  • dBase Files and Applications using dBase (like QuickFill and ServantKeeper)

 

All fields in the relevant tables of a database can be used to personalize the subject and message of a mass emailing.

 

To connect to a local database, after logging in, click on the "Lists" tab, and then click the "Databases" tab and "Create New Database". The first time you enter this section, you will have to allow JangoMail to install some software on your computer. You must choose "Yes" to the series of popup install boxes that will appear. This functionality makes use of an ActiveX control.
