    I am very surprised about the lack of CRM packages that do bulk email?

    Do people find it messy / time consuming to have one application for CRM and another email?

    Yep...generally you will find that the bulk Email service providers will have some capability to read/import data exported from popular CRMs. Saying that CRM providers are catching up....we use HubSpot and it has a Marketing module which is an add-on and I am sure it allows sending bulk Emails.

    It's not too messy if you're organised. I use mailchimp for email campaigns. You can send around 10,000 emails per month and have 2000 subscribers for free. If you're tight and don't want to pay, you can always make multiple accounts!

    ok thanks.

    The reason I'm thinking its messy is how do you extract 1000 emails addresses out of a CRM?I'm suspecting most CRMs use some sort of proprietary format for contacts to lock you in?
