merge into an email, not a document

Post by YmFtYmljYX » Sat, 02 Oct 2004 06:31:03


I am looking to use an email message and merge with multiple addresses, but
only to send one email at a time, with info specific to the recipient
included in the body of the email -- very similar to how spam is sent

Any suggestions?

That's exactly what mail merge does when you choose email as the destination
instead of printer or document.

Thanks for your help. Obviously, I am behind the times as I did not know this
option existed. What version of Word did it come out in?

Is there a way to have multiple email addresses for each email sent. It
looks as if the Mail Merge only can handle one email address for each email
sent. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Not if you want to use mail merge, unless you put the addresses into a
distribution list.

Thanks for the quick reply. Can you please document how you create a
distribution list?

File | New | Distribution List, then click Select Members. But I just tried
it and it won't work with mail merge, so it's a bit of a moot point.

The answer to your original question, then, is: not with Office's mail merge
feature.
