I want to send a blast email to a specific category of persons in my contacts.  I want only each person's name to appear in the "to" field -- and do not want them to see any other names the email was sent to.  I found an answer on how to do this (dated 6/13/05) but i do not know how to do the first step which is:  "Publish your outlook contacts as an e-mail address book, so that the e-mail addresses becomes aailable as data for a Word mail merge."
