Outlook 2002 email merge account selection


R

RK

Is there a way to select which account to send a mail merge?
For an individual message I can select the account button on the menu bar
and select whichever account I choose.
Can I select which account will send a mail merge or does it have to be the
default account?
(I manage a distribution list for a local group and have an email account
for activity specific to that group. Recently I set-up and sent a merged
message to members and it went using my main (default)account. I would have
preferred to use another account for this particular message. I'm attempting
to keep my personal life and my volunteer life separate in my emails)

Confusing post.
Mail merges cannot use DL's.
Elaborate further.

I mean a list of emails (group) to which I distribute messages. I want to
send a mail message (merged and personalized) to each member of the group. I
wish the outgoing message to come from a particular account, not my default,
personal account. The outgoing message should come from a secondary account
I have created especially for this group.

Elaborate further.

Then you'll need to create an Outlook profile in which that account is the
default and use that profile for the merge.
