It would be awesome if YAMM could...

allow preview of each email to be sent (not only the first in list)

Similar to mail merge in Outlook, I would like to be able to preview each email that will be sent. Many times the first email in my merge is not indicative of what the rest will look like, and I would like to ensure that the formatting for all my emails will send correctly. I have had several occasions where dollar amounts, for example, were sent to customers with 10 digits after the decimal place. I was unable to foresee this problem when previewing the first email, simply because it happened to have a nice rounded dollar amount. I am currently working around this using the ROUND() function in Google Sheets, but would love to see this idea implemented in order to avoid future embarrassment with unforeseen formatting problems.

    I would also like to be able to preview each individual message. I need to generate unique emails to about 200 people with some frequency, and because the emails concern awards the details need to be exactly right. Being able to check a preview of each message would substantially improve my experience with YAMM.

    I'm a first time user and am dreading glitches I can't check before I send. Sending personalized e-mail to people using the wrong name, for example. So checking before I send would be really helpful.

    Great idea - I've used Gmass in the past and I appreciated that it gave you the option to create drafts first in case I wanted to make unique, individual updates to certain e-mails before I sent them.

    I second this. On related usability note, it's nice to maintain a long master list of emails sent, but occasionally I send them out in batches. It would be great to be able to set which row you want to use as the preview so you can check for those unique ones.
