Select sender email address when doing mailmerge from MS Word & Outlook


When doing a mail merge in MS Word (2013) with Outlook as the email application and the source in an Excel spreadsheet, how do you define the sender email address?

In Outlook, I have got two separate email accounts. I know how to set up an Excel spreadsheet with field columns including a column with the recipient email addresses. I also am familiar with how to set up the actual message in Word. However, when I am ready to do the actual merge & send, I assume the source (sender) email address will be the one I've got as default but how can I have the messages originate from my other email address?

You either need to change your Default Email Account before doing the Mail Merge, or setup another Profile.  If you set up another Profile, you will be asked which Profile to use during the Mail Merge process.
