Bells & Whistles for Outlook: basic mail merge
How to create BCC mail merge sessions from Outlook
Mail merging from Outlook used to be a pain, forcing you to deal with
Outlook distribution lists, Outlook Contacts and MS-Word.
Bells & Whistles for Outlook makes it very easy, by converting the BCC field
to a mail merge field. As a result, in order to avoid sending emails with multiple
CC, BCC or TO addresses and to quickly generate messages with unique TO fields,
you must enable the Bells & Whistles BCC mail merge option. Outlook will then
fire one email for each address added to the BCC field of a composed message.
To enable this option, open the Bells & Whistles options (from the Outlook Tools
menu), go to the "Send Options" section, make sure the Send Rules are enabled, click on Add and select "create mail merge from each BCC address".
