    Can I do a mail merge as a delegate? (Office XP)

    I want to send out a small mass mailing on behalf of someone else. I figured out how delgates worked, set it up, and tested it with by sending out a single email from the other person for whom I am a delgate. So far, so good. I then figured out how mail merge works, and tested it out with a couple of records. Not quite so good. The mail was sent out by me, not by the person for whom I am a delegate. I can't see anywhere in the "merge to email" dialog box that allows you to set subject, etc., to set who the mail is 'from". Am I missing something, or is this another thing that Outlook can't do? Thanks in advance.

    Just before sending the e-mails from Word, display the mail envelope by activating the e-mail button on the toolbar. If you don't see a "From" box, you'll have to make this visible in Outlook first (View menu in a new mail message). You can then specify the "on behalf of" name in the "From" box.

    Unfortunately, that restricts me to sending the emails one-by-one, which defeats much of the advantages of doing a mail merge.

    Are there any other solutions?

    Why? Leave the To box blank, it will be filled in by the merge.
