Mass Email Option in salesforce

What is best way to Mass e-mail?
Requirement

A)Send e-mail to all pet owners listed in the report "Geneseek Delay Mass Email" under CS Mgmt Reports :
Sample Mgmt using the e-mail template under WPLabDelayMassEmail under "MSS Customer Service".

B) Creates activity record under users

I tried the below process ( with limited success)

created a campaign
Add the report output to campaign
Under contacts->tools-> selected Mass email step
This is allowing me send only 500 contacts only

Hi, 

This purely depends on the business requirement. 

Both the options are widely used. 

When we have to send to a list more than 200 then we add the list in a Campaign and then send Mass email.

Hi,
Please follow the instructions for the mass email:
https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=email_mass.htm&language=en_US

There are some limitations:
https://success.salesforce.com/answers?id=90630000000hOXbAAM

The reason you are only being able to add 500 users is due to the following:
Outbound Email: Limits for Single and Mass Email Sent Using Apex
Using the API or Apex, you can send single emails to a maximum of 1,000 external email addresses per day based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Single emails sent using the Salesforce application don't count toward this limit. There’s no limit on sending individual emails to contacts, leads, person accounts, and users in your organization directly from account, contact, lead, opportunity, case, campaign, or custom object pages.
When sending single emails, keep in mind:
You can send 100 emails per SingleEmailMessage.
If you use SingleEmailMessage to email your organization’s internal users, specifying the user’s ID in setTargetObjectId means the email doesn’t count toward the daily limit. However, specifying internal users’ email addresseses in setToAddresses means the email does count toward the limit.
You can send mass email to a maximum of 1,000 external email addresses per day per organization based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The maximum number of external addresses you can include in each mass email depends on your edition:
Edition External Address Limit per Mass Email
Personal, Contact Manager, and Group Editions Mass email not available
Professional Edition 250
Enterprise Edition 500
Unlimited and Performance Edition 1,000

Hello,

Your email marketing goals don’t slow down for Salesforce send limitations, so why should you? Send the amount of emails that you need when you need with ease. You campaigns go out as needed when you use MassMailer to break free of the inherent hurdles set in place by Salesforce.

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