I am using word to mail merge through outlook.

I works great when I want to send from my default email account

When I want to have the emails from a second email account (showing that email address as the from account) I have to open each email and change it.

Is there a way to do this automatically?

The easiest way would be to change the default sending account, run the merge, and then set it back again.

Tried sending the default account (including shutting down the computer & re-booting). Did not solve the problem

Note that my second email address is an AOL address linked to outlook - could this be the problem?

Messages end up in the outbox and need to be opened to send.

Could I do this with a macro run on all messages in the outbox?

You could create a second profile for your aol account by using the mail function in control panel. Make sure you tick the box 'prompt for profile', then when you open outlook it will ask for the profile you want to use and then will use this profile when you do your mail merge.

Hope this helps.
