Hi All,

I have a problem, in that i have to send 500+ Emails to individual email addresses with a users password attached (email addresses and passwords stored in an excel sheet).

The problem is that my boss wants Voting Buttons to confirm receipt of the emails and i cannot find a way of doing this in words' email merge, or in outlooks mailmerge from within contacts.

I have tried adding a button to the page with a macro behind it, but this throws security prompts up, and i have also tried hyperlink "Mailto's" but this is not to his liking :-(

Does anyone have any ideas how this can be achieved?

Regards
Mark.

Hi,

That works for individual emails, but not for an e-mail merge to multiple receipients from a data source. Unless i am missing something here. :-)

Sorry squizzer, your boss is asking too much. No voting button options in email merge. Only other option, if you are using exchange srever, is to select in tools/options to request read receipt for ALL emails. If so, you will then be able to veryify that the user has read the message
Good luck
Karen
