I like to use the new taxonomy to make a little CRM, really simple

- name
- tel
- email
- company

Fine, the secretary will enter all the name in the database of the cms (WordPress), and i will have all those in, able to display it like a list or whatever i like

1) first question, do i reinvent the wheel, is it already done...

Now, with all those nice contact... i have a page, or a list of really good product.. and all those contact can benefit to see it in there mail, much like a newsletter, but simpler...

2) question, how can i get all those email, and have wp to send the wp page/link to those email... plugin, code ?

thanks in advance for the light on that

You are asking way too much at once here and unlikely to get good complete answers. There are at least three questions here - how to organize data in that structure, how to display it, how to make mailing list out of it... Please consider splitting this in separate more manageable questions. – Rarst May 11 '11 at 22:44
The most important part... get taxonomy email in and array to use it... – menardmam May 11 '11 at 22:47
name, tel, email, and company are meta data, those should be custom fields associated with a "contact" custom post type. a taxonomy would be "business contacts", "personal contacts", "family" or some other means of categorizing or describing things. – Milo May 11 '11 at 23:11

Start with the Twenty Ten CRM Child Theme. It's more than a good starting point plus you could everything you mentioned if you code yourself the appropriate widgets/plugins.
