Hello Everyone,
I am new and need help with this question. In what application would you use Mail Shot? I have tried various help lines and cannot find out what Mail Shot is, let alone what application you would use it in. This question was recently posed in my ECDL exam, I didn't know the answer then and am no wiser now. I would appreciate it if someone could give me a definition.

:thumbsup: Hello Scarlett,
Many thanks for your prompt reply. At least I now know what Mail Shot is.
No where in any of my own books or course manuals does it give this information.
Many thanks once again
Angela

Hi Scarlet,
I sat the last two of eight ECDL modules Monday evening. According to my tutor I have passed but will have to wait for confirmation which will be sometime over the next couple of months. Thanks for the good luck - must have helped. :thumbsup:
