I am using mail merge to send multiple emails but can't get the person's name in the "To:" box (or field), so it arrives with just their email address in "To." I have to fix this or work all night! If I could just use mail merge to put the "Display As" field, from Contacts, into the "To" box, it would work. But, apparently, I can't do that. Or can I?
These are authorized, nice emails, hundreds I have to send today. I am using Word 2007 and Outlook Contacts 2007, and mail merge wizard. The wizard sends the email with only the recipient's email address in the "To" box, and that isn't personal enough.
Outlook Contacts has a "Display As" field, which I'd love to put in the "To" part of the email, but I can't get this to work in mail merge. ("Display As" combines the "Name" and "Email" fields, I guess.)
I have spent too long researching this as best I can, and all I can find is that "E-mail Displayed As" is an Outlook Contact field "not available in a Word mail merge."
I found a company selling a "Mail Merge Toolkit"
that I can download right now, but based on what is says it CAN do, it seems like it can't do what I need. It would take so much time to download and itstall it just to see it won't work..... Please don't recommend an email service.... That won't work right now.
I am pretty desperate for help
