Are these all just the same person hocking resume launchpad? It is so outdated. It has Dewey & LeBouef as a firm option. 2 out of 5 e-mails come back with "this e-mail is inactive" or "this person no longer works here," and thats only the ones that have responses set up for that. I'd wager over half those e-mails go NOWHERE. Also, firms are hip to this mass mailing these days and so another 2 out of 5 e-mails sent gets a response saying "if you want to apply, do it via our online portal," so they are able to weed out anyone too lazy.
It is outdated. I just check the firm info before I send. If the firm name is different, or there's a new contact person, I just take the email RL generated, copy-paste into my own email account, and send to the right person from there instead. It's really helpful for finding the firms and creating the emails, but it needs double checking.
This. Chances are if it's going to a generic email like firstname.lastname@example.org then you're throwing a quarter into a void. The entire problem could be avoided if it would just allow you to edit the address field.
