Mail Merge E-mail options

You can produce form letters using Writer and then use the mail merge function to personalize those letters and send them to a number of addresses taken from a data source, such as an address book. Mail merged documents can be printed and mailed, or sent by e-mail.

Use the Options – Writer – Mail Merge E-mail page to set up the user and server information for sending form letters by e-mail. If you are not sure what information to put in any of the fields, consult your e-mail program or your Internet service provider.

Specifying settings for use when e-mailing mail-merged form letters

Choosing options for HTML documents

You can configure to treat HTML documents in Writer differently than regular documents.

  1. If the Options dialog box is not already open, click Tools > Options.
  2. Click the + sign by Writer/Web in the left-hand section of the Options – dialog box. A list of subsections drops down.

Here you can customize settings related to printing, formatting aids, view options, table defaults, the grid, and a default background for HTML documents you're working with in Writer.

Image:documentation_note.png Many of the options available under Options – Writer/Web are identical to the settings under Options – Writer but will only affect HTML documents opened in Writer. The previous sections contain detailed discussion on these options.
