Sending Mass Emails



I am currently running a database that contains just around 400 contacts in it. Each contact could have up to 5 email addresses linked to it, (each one obviously has its own unique field/field name).
Since I am new to FileMaker and do not want to waste time doing something to find out I did it the wrong way, I was wondering if someone can tell me how to send out a mass email.

The ideal for me would be to have a button above my "Contact List" that would automatically open Mail and start a new message to all the email address I have entered. Is this possible? I really hope it is due to the fact that it is one of the main reasons I purchased FileMaker, and have spent over 100 hours creating my database and entering all my contact's info.

My guess is that it probably involves some scripting, which I am close to horrible at, so some help would be greatly appreciated!
