Being able to attadh docs to email in a mail merge would be great

When sending an email to a distribution I've found that attachments to the
merged email do not stay attached. Instead, the note gets sent without the
attached file.

This is a real hassle since the attachment is present during the creation of
the mail merge master document.

You can also include the file in the document as text. Sometimes you get some
weird formatting, but for most simple documents, they look okay. It's a bit
of a pain, but it's the only thing I've found that seems to work.
Once you get your mail merge ready, put the cursor at the very bottom of
your email message, and click once. (You might want to hit Enter a couple of
times to add some space.) Then go up to the menu bar and hit "Insert", choose
"File." When the dialog box pops up, select your file, then click the little
arrow next to the Insert button, and select "Insert as text." The content of
the document will be added to the bottom of your email message. Then you can
continue on to complete your merge. Hope this helps! I know it's not ideal,
and if anyone knows of a better way, please let me know!
