E-Mail merge sending from a shared mailbox

    I have 1 account plus a shared mail box that I am not the owner of, but I have been given all the rights to it, such as reading and sending e-mails from it. It is also showing up in my panel with folders such as Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items etc.

    When I manually send an e-mail, I can choose the sender address from the "From" button.

    I have also added some VBA code that chooses this shared mailbox as the default, by programmatically setting oMail.SentOnBehalfOfName = "sharedemailbox@shared.com"

    This also works fine.

    Now, when I do a mail-merge from Word, and want to send e-mails, I cannot choose the shared mailbox as the sender. The sender address is always the main account.

    I need to set sender address for the e-mail-merge to the shared mailbox.

    How can I do that?

    Is there some VBA code that will do this for me?

    Do I need to code some VBA in Word?

    I hope some experts can help me out.
