Does anybody have any suggestions to specify the "from" account in a Word email merge? If I send emails through mail merge, the messages are sent from my default account. How can I specify that they be sent from a different account without having to open the outbox and manually change the "From" address?

I have a quick step that moves them from my default outbox to the target account's outbox, but still have to open each and specify the address, because I am sending from an account as a delegate.

I'll start clicking emails and hope I get a quick response.

Thanks

it's not possible using native features - well, unless you change the default account.




Choices are:


1. Change the account. My recommendation is to copy the profile and remove the other accounts from the copy. Use this when you send a merge.




2. Use a 3rd party merge utility. These offer more features so they may be well worth the investment. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/mailmerge.asp for a list.

Thanks for your response. That is disapointing. Anybody doing an email merge probably has a pretty complicated profile.

Thats one reason why you copy the profile and remove the accounts you dont need and set the desired merge account as default. While you could just change the order in your profile, you need to remember to change it back. Using a separate simpler profile makes it easier to remember you need to switch profiles.
