How to contact a group of Contacts or Leads via email (Not Mass Email or Email Marketing)
This is a way to email a small set of your Contacts at a time from inside of Salesforce.
NOTE: You are limited to a daily amount of emails per Organization, so this method will not work for email marketing needs. You'll want to use a third party tool for those needs.
Select a View and click Go or create a new View that contains the Contacts you wish to be included in the email.
NOTE: The number of Contacts must be less than your daily email limit.

Choose the right template folder and choose the email template you wish to use and click Next
