Besides the different interfaces, what is the difference between Mail Merge (which has its own menu button) and Direct Mail Print (which falls under the Marketing button)?

After working with both, I agree with Diane. We use Direct Mail Print for mail merging letters, so BCM maintains a record of the mailing, and Mail Merge for the labels, to prevent duplicate tracking for the same mailing.
