Send that email, stat !

I'm working for a newer growing, small business (4-5 employees or so).
We have to send emails containing the same information to existing customers.
For example, we have to notify customers about their accounts (for
example, their CC/billing information becomes outdated) or customers
send us a question. We're looking for an efficient way to do this.

Right now, we want to send out emails more efficient and rich than our current system:
using Apple Mail (our office is using Mac OS X Tiger, and will
continue to use Tiger, and Leopard, once Tiger is no longer supported
by Apple) having a templates folder, selecting the send again button and then inserting the person's email. More importantly, Apple Mail (to the best of my knowledge) doesn't send out emails in HTML. Also, the ability to edit these emails before we send them out (like, adding an extra sentence to it before hitting send).
Instead, my boss is looking for a system that would create more professional looking emails (ones that you get from an established web business) and will allow someone with no web development expertise to send them out to customers.
Related to this, is there a way to automate this so that an html version of the email, and a plain text version is also automatically generated ?
(For this second question, I'm hoping there's an easier way
than writing a script from scratch (I'm familiar with java, but I think that isn't appropriate for this) to assign the content that changes to variables, and then inserts the content to the variables in templates that already contain the formatting.)
