Easiest way: You do the mail merge on (with) the account that should be the from field

It's not an account. Its a distribution list they have rights to send from.

You can probably do it with a bit of scripting:

I think peakpeak is right here...just open the account the prepare the mail merge from there... but here's another post that MAY be of assistance.  Not really clear on how you plan on doing the merge - VBA or manually.
