Mail Merge in Outlook ( NOT SPAM! )

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Microsoft_Project/Q_21114279.html


I posted this under MS Office apps. Maybe it's in the wrong area-
Either way, I figured out the mail marge aspect but can't figure out how to send the messages other then one by one. I didn't think this was going to stump the forum, and really need an amswer on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again, I need to send out a personalized email to people I know, and am not a Spammer by any means.

Highlight everyone in the contact list you want to send to before going to TOOLS - MAIL MERGE

Then there will be a button on the mail merge toolbar so you can view all of the individual e-mails.

Using mail merge the way it is, you must click send for every message......

or

1. Buy a thrid party addin.

or

2. There is a freeware program out there on the web somewhere which will automatically push the send button for you.
But for the life of me, I don't remember it's name right now.

From this site:

You can avoid this happening by downloading the "Express ClickYes" utility that is available as a free download from:
http://www.express-soft.com/mailmate/clickyes.html

Express ClickYes is a tiny program that sits in the taskbar and clicks the Yes button on behalf of you, when Outlook's Security Guard opens prompt dialog saying that a program is trying to send an email with Outlook or access its address book. You can suspend/resume it by double-clicking its taskbar icon. Developers can automate its behaviour by sending special messages.

Thanks- I upped the points to ask why is it, that after I complete the receipient address's and have the letter ready to mail, I cannot send it because the to: or cc: fields are empty. I get an error message when trying to send. I would think the email address's are tied in with the names in the mail merge? No?
So my final question is, after I write the letter, set up the merge fields, and select the receipients, why is it that the to: line is empty? Should it contain the email address's from the merge?? And what do I have to do to get this working properly?? The freeware was a great addition, but I can't send the messages because to to: line is blank.
