mail merge to email with attachment and bcc

I need to merge an excel table of names and addresses with some text to create personalized email messages. Each message must be BCC'd to two people and include two PDF attachments, and must come from a particular email address to which I have access. I was going to do this with Word 2007, but it seems that MS Word cannot handle the BCC or the attachments.

What other options are out there? I don't want to write a program using (classic) ASP to merge the list and the names. Is there some program, Outlook Add-on or service out there that charges a nominal amount of money that can do this task?

Thank you.

Hi, Lev.

This is simple to do with a bit of scripting.  I can help if that's an option.

Thank you. I ended up going to a 3rd party mailing house and I sent the letters that way. While I knew that I could script something, or hire a scripter, I did not want to use that type of solution.
