Email mailmerge

  Liteman 21:14 25 Jul 2005

I have an address book in outlook of about 500 email addresses. I want to be able to send each one the same email, but with only their name/address in the header. Is there an easy way?

Easier than mail merge might be to send it to yourself in the To: field and to create a Distribution List and enter that in the Bcc: field.

To see the Bcc: field start a new message and View | Bcc field.

To create a Distribution List:

On the File menu, point to New, and then click Distribution List.

In the Name box, type a name.

Click Select Members.

In the Show names from the list, click the address book that contains the e-mail addresses you want in your distribution list.

In the Type name or select from list box, type a name you want to include. In the list below, select the name, and then click Members. Do this for each person you want to add to the distribution list, and then click OK.

If you want to add a longer description of the distribution list, click the Notes tab, and then type the text.

The distribution list is saved in your Contacts folder by the name you give it.

Thanks VoG - obviously you just need to think laterally, easy when you put your mind to it
