Hi, sydneyguy.

You cannot use the built-in mail merge to send messages with different subjects.  This article from my blog contains a solution that is close to what you want.  If you want to use it, then I can modify it to handle different subjects for different recipients.  It uses an Excel data source, but I can change that too or you could export your database to Excel.

I'll need to know the names of the fields in your database. If you coul upload a copy of it, without the data, that'd be a big help.
