Gmail supports sending a limited number of bulk emails. However, there are a number of caveats because Gmail is not optimized for bulk mailing whereas SendPulse is specifically designed for sending bulk emails at no cost, including Gmail recipients. This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide.
There are three ways to send bulk emails.
Firstly, you can manually add multiple recipients to one email in Gmail. This is not very practical because Gmail limits the number of recipients per email to 500.
Secondly, you can use a browser extension like GMass. This is much more convenient than the first method, but it has weak points, too. You can’t create beautiful marketing emails, and working with a large list of recipients is still inconvenient.
Finally, you can use a bulk email service, which is explicitly designed for sending emails to large mailing lists.
Follow these four simple steps to send mass emails the right way:
Step 1: Register with SendPulse
To send bulk emails with ease, let a reliable email service do the technical work for you. SendPulse provides all the necessary tools for creating high-quality emails without any coding skills. Register your account with SendPulse to maximize your profits by sending bulk emails.
Step 2: Upload a Mailing List
Upload your mailing list, type in the email addresses manually, or start generating subscribers from scratch with SendPulse free subscription forms. You can create a subscription form, like in the screenshot below, in less than 30 minutes!

Here are simple step-by-step instructions on how to create an email campaign with SendPulse.
Step 4: Monitor the Statistics
After sending bulk emails with SendPulse, you get a detailed statistical report. You can see how many subscribers opened or clicked through your email; how many users unsubscribed or marked your email as spam.
In the screenshot below, there is the “Campaign statistics” section in SendPulse.
Having all of this data on hand helps you understand the efficiency of a particular campaign and improve your strategy.
So, now you know how simple it is to send bulk emails. Before you send your first campaign, review the tools SendPulse offers to perfect your email marketing campaigns.
- Anti-spam recommendations. Before you send a bulk email, you can find out how spammy it is for email providers like Gmail or Yahoo. Here’s how to check emails for spam with SendPulse.
- 130+ free pre-designed templates. Though creating emails with SendPulse is easy, you may be too busy to start from scratch. In this case, make use of our template library.
- Automation. You can set up email workflows to send bulk emails in response to users’ actions, specific dates, and other triggers. Just set up an automated email flow once, and it will work without your participation.
- Segmentation. This technique helps divide your audience into groups that have something in common, like age, gender, location, etc. It allows you to send one bulk email with slightly different content to fit everyone.
- Personalization. You can send personalized bulk emails to increase subscribers’ engagement. Simple personalization starts with adding the recipient’s name to the subject line and email content. You can also make it more effective by creating personalized onboarding, purchasing, lead nurturing, and other processes.
