Word 07 Mail Merge not talking to Outlook 07

  Gardenleaver 13:44 06 Nov 2007


I'm running Windows XP Home and Office 2007 Small Business Edition.

Previously I've been able to use the Mail Merge wizard in Word 07 to create an email mail merge, with no problems.

For some reason, although the Mail Merge wizard functions fine in Word and appears to execute the merge, nothing gets passed to Outlook and no mails get sent.

I have tried turning off my anti-virus temporarily, but the problem persists.

- Anyone had anything similar?
- Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Ok - You`ve no help so far and I`m still using Office XP! At lest this will put you back at the top of the list. Forget the wizard and get the mailmerge toolbar available in Word by going to View>Toolbars etc

Make sure that Outlook is your default e-mail client (Look in Tools>Options on one of the tabs - In XP it was the "other" tab) Also you have to have at least one e-mail account set up, specifically the one you want to use set as the default.
