Q: How does IMCaster E-Marketer work ?
A: IMCaster E-Marketer works by talking to the ICQ
server directly. It uses the latest OSCAR protocol
for many new features. It is a SUPER ICQ client,
in a way that it can :
- Handle multiple login.
- Search through the user
database and filter
out duplicates results.
- Send and respond to
messages in parallel (multi-threaded).
Q: How many message can I send in one hour ?
A: About 5000 - 10000 messages in one hour. Other
factor that may affect the rate are:
- the number of threads you use.
- the criteria you specified in your search.
- how many duplicated records you got.
- the speed of proxy server (if you use a proxy
Q: What can I do with the auto-responder
A: Auto-responder is a great feature for you to
enhance the effectiveness of your promotional and
provide answers to some questions from the recipients.
When auto-responding messages are carefully planed
and used, many recipients will believe it's send
by a true people.
Q: What is a project ?
A: Project is a file used to save the state and
settings. Each project contains the criteria you
specified on the "Filter Tab", the messages on the
"Message Tab", sender UIN on the "Sender UIN", Options
on the "Options Tab" and auto-response keyword and
message on the "Auto Responder Tab".
Q: How many sender UIN should I use ?
A: The minimum number of sender UIN required is
the number of threads you use (search + send). For
better performance, we'd recommend three times the
number of threads you use.
You can also import sender UINs from an external
text file (uinpassword.txt) you saved before.
Q: I've got this message "no clean UIN to use" from
the system log, what does that means ?
A: It means that all your sender UIN have been used
to search and send message extensively and hit a
rate limit imposed by ICQ. They are unable to do
anything for some couples of minutes. When all your
sender UINs reach this state, this message would
come out. You should input more sender UIN or decrease
the number of threads.
Q: What kind of message can I send ?
A: Both ICQ message and URL message can be sent
by IMCaster. Here is their difference:
An ICQ Message has a longer text length of 250 characters
but do not have a heading. A URL message has the
URL as the heading and the recipient has a button
to open the URL directly. However it has a shorter
description length of 100 characters.
Q: How do I have IMCaster to send a test message
A: In the Options dialog, enter your own UIN in
the Test UIN box to receive a test message every
