#64 Use the Mail Merge Wizard to Send Personalized Group Emails

June 21, 2011

With the volume of email we send and receive each day, it can be challenging to have your email noticed when sending to a group. The next time you need to send out an announcement or request, try using Word’s Mail Merge feature to send out personalized emails to large groups of people.

Mail merge allows you to combine the editing power of Microsoft Word with the email capabilities of Outlook. Get started by drafing your email in Word. When you are ready to personalize, open theMailings tab, click Start Mail Merge, and choose Step by Step Mail Merge Wizard. The wizard will guide you through all the steps including building a recipient list.
