Can I automate sending emails in Gmail one at a time?

I'd like to send the same email to a group of about 40 people, but instead of sending it BCC with me in the "to" field, I'd really like to send it individually to each person. Is there a way to automate this? [more inside]

How to email myself that I have a phone call?

I have a habit of muting my phone, dumping it into my bag, and forgetting that the phone has been silenced. I also spend a lot of time at the computer or using a tablet, so if I could just have the phone send me email, I'd know I had a call. I have an iPhone 6 with service from Verizon. [more inside]

Recommendations for post-divorce mortgage communication?

I need a legally-enforceable, semi "public" method for my abusive ex to communicate to me evidence of his compliance with his legal responsibilities.

Ecard alternative?

How would you send a personal note that is more meaningful than an email, but not deep enough to warrant a hand written snail mail? Ecards seemed to fill this niche previously, but feel too dated and archaic for use now, especially for younger people. Are there any other alternatives?

Mysterious MacBook temporary spinning ball when attaching to email

I have a late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina which I recently upgraded to Yosemite. Ever since, when I'm trying to attach a file to an email (Gmail), when I try to click on the file in the finder window that opens, I get a spinning ball for about 8 seconds. Then it stops for a second or two, spins another second or two, and stops. I am then able to attach the file. This does not happen every time — sometimes (maybe one out of three tries) the attaching works correctly without hesitation. [more inside]

Is getting people to sign up for an email list worth the hassle?

I run a small monthly arts event. We do publicity with posters and online through social media (no budget for buying ads) and also have an sponsorship with a local radio station to promote us online and on-air. When I say "we" I mean "me" because I'm the only one who handles all that. We have a website, Twitter, Facebook that I keep updated. But a few people have told me I should collect attendees' email addresses and keep a list and send out notifications that way. [more inside]

The easiest, cheapest way to send an email that can be "signed"?

I am needing a way to send an email template that will have a few paragraphs of text and a couple of fields, that the recipient to "sign" that they read it (by filling in NAME and DATE OF BIRTH fields, [and maybe another field or two]) and then hit "reply", allowing us to see that they did indeed type into those fields and what they typed. What is the quickest, easiest, free-est (or cheapest) way to do this? We would be sending this out of a Gmail account, if that matters. This need not be automated in any way as we expect to do this in volumes that can be handled manually.
