MailMerge - This page is intended to provide a sort of plug-n-play "Mailmerge for Dummies" way of setting up your own query system using Mailmerge. Michael L. Hébert

E-mail - To accept queries by email, simply post your email address and instructions regarding the format in which you want them submitted. The advantage to email queries is that it is very very simple to set up. The disadvantage is that you must either cut and paste them into a page or they must be formatted to be imported into CCHelper. Also, your mailbox can fill up quickly if you go on vacation or if you are ill for an extended period.
