The Standard Version is designed for end users, and includes the Total Access Emailer add-in program.
The Professional Version includes the Standard Version, plus:
- A programmatic interface that lets you send email blasts from your VBA code. For instance, you can tie a macro or button on a form to a specific email blast and let Total Access Emailer run in the background without you or the user launching the add-in. For more information, visit Sending Microsoft Access Email Blasts Programmatically (VBA).
- Runtime License to distribute applications that use the functionality of Total Access Emailer. This enables your end users to execute Total Access Emailer blasts you've created without having to each purchase a license of the Total Access Emailer add-in. Your end-users do not receive the add-in which lets them create and design their own email blasts.
As the developer, if you want to create all the email blasts and programmatically launch them from your application (your users don't need to know Total Access Emailer is running), then get the Professional Version. That lets you run the Total Access Emailer add-in to interactively create and test your email blasts, then use the royalty-free runtime library to incorporate it in your application. Tie it to a button, event or some other process and launch the email blast you want. You can support users of your application who do not have a Total Access Emailer license.
If your users want to create their own email blasts using your database or any Access database, they'll need to install the Standard Version of Total Access Emailer which gives them the add-in to launch. Each user would need a license.
