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?

You don't tell Outlook anything; you start a mail merge from within Word,
use Excel as the source and Outlook for sending. Sounds complicated but it's
all automated ;-)

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

Thank you for this response. I wish this was listed some where in the on-line
help. I did several searches and looked in the table of contents and found
nothing.

Microsoft really needs to improve their help system.

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
