Hour 10. Outlook As a Contact Manager > Using Contacts for Mail Merge

Using Contacts for Mail Merge

One of the advantages to using Outlook for contacts is the ability to use your contacts for a mail merge. The benefits of mail merge include customizing and personalizing a form letter for each recipient. It's also used for sending a group of people the same email message, enabling you to put the individuals address in the To field without exposing all the email addresses to the other recipients.

How Mail Merges Work

Outlook and Word work together when you're doing a mail merge, and you can start the merge from either Outlook or Word. Where you begin the merge is important because it determines the fields you'll be able to use in the mail merge.

Along with the additional fields you'll have available to use, you'll have better filtering from Outlook and will be able to select exactly the contacts you want to use in the mail merge.

Regardless of the method you use to begin the merge, the steps used to complete the merge are the same.
