I have a Excel database of with names and e-mails. I want to send an e-mail
to each of those people. How do I tell Outlook to use that Excel database to
send an e-mail to each person?

I suspect you need to import the mail addresses into a new Contact folder
and use that....

No need for that.

This was very helpful so far...but I am having problems with the last part.

I will start by saying, I am pretty new to Microsoft 2007...but I am very
familiar with merging documents from prior versions.

I made and checked my document in Word, however, I do not see where I tell
it to send to Outlook. This is new to me.

Can you help?

Debbie
