Is there an app or process that produces bulk mailings of individualized HTML emails?

For almost 2 years, my graphics work has been donated to a local nonprofit. They mostly use Microsoft Office apps. I have that plus the current Adobe CC Suite. They would like to compile a list of individuals that a bulk mailing would send nicely-styled HTML emails (with the message in the email itself, not attached to it). The emails would be individualized in the Send To field and would include the recipient's name and perhaps other specifics in the body of the email.

Past e-mailings of theirs have used PDF attachments to hold the message. They weren't successful.

IOW the grouped emails should look like each one was sent by the nonprofit to a single recipient, including the info relevant to that recipient. E.g., how long the recipient has supported the nonprofit.

I know nothing about how that would be done, but am definitely willing to learn.

ten years ago I used Open Office for doing e-mail merge.

Sounds like the term may be e-mail merge. That moves me one step forward. Thanks.

like mail merge... but with e-mail. Sends out 50 e-mails if you have 50 recipients. Beware of anti-spam.

Word 2019 for Dummies has a whole chapter on mail merge -- including e-mail merge. Lots of specific instructions and tips. Plus they say there's a Wizard the non-macho may wish to employ. Howsoever, they start by stating that rocket science, brain surgery and other complex topics are easier than mail merge in Word. Nevertheless... I shall persevere.

I think what you really need is a bulk e-mail sending service like MailChimp or Constant Contact.  They have industry tested e-mail templates  that work in  major e-mail systems like Outlook and G-mail.
