Here are some great walk-though resources:

To summarize email campaigns, after you create the campaign, you need to add members. This can be done either through a Contact or Lead report (there is a button to add to campaign), or through the Add Members button on the campaign.

Once you have the members added as Campaign Members, you can use a Mass Email to send to all of them. You will first need to create your email template and then create a view that uses the Campaign members as the user list.

Then you can follow the Mass Email wizard to send off an email. There are limitations to using Mass Email through Salesforce. If these are something that will be a problem, I would recommend a 3rd party email marketing app from the AppExchange.

Hi Ray,

Third Party mass Email application would be a great solution for sending Mass Emails as  there are limitations in salesforce in sending Mass Emails i.e. 250 emails in Professional Edition, 500 in Enterprise Edition and 1000 in Unlimited Edition.

In order to make yourself Unlimited while sending the mass emails to Contacts, Leads, Users and sending emails Campaign Members then you need to check an appexchange native app - MassMailer.This will let you bypass salesforce mass email limits, let you choose sender email address, reply to email address and at the same time let you send simple marketing emails to Schedule one-off mass emails. With this you can keep tack of you Emails i.e. it got delivered, Opened, Unsubscribed etc. 

For this, you might need to visit and play with this app -
