Two questions regarding sending emails from Filemaker


#1. How do I send a personalized email from Filemaker: "Dear FirstName, blah, blah,blah...." I have a global field that contains the body, but don't know how to insert the salutation.

#2. I want to send an email to each member of a found set. I want the email to only show the recipients email address in the TO: or BCC field. I think I can accomplish this two ways by 

a. Sending multiple emails, put the address in the "TO:" field or

b. Send One email, putting address in BCC field, selecting "collect addresses across found set"

Are there other choices? (I find the email menu very confusing, and have ended up sending many unwanted, duplicate emails....)

What are the practical differences between the two methods - i.e., is one method preferable over the other?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
