Create a mail merge-like feature
Create a mail merge-like feature allowing users to personalize mass emails by inserting merge fields based on contact records (e.g. first name, company etc).
I am using Excel, Word, and Outlook to create and send a mail merge.
The mail merge is unable to be finished and completed because on Word I get “word was unable to mail your document.” The the only email that is sent from the Excel sheet is the first one.
The only solution I could find is to revert back from the 16.39 version to the 16.38 version of Word, Excel, and Outlook.
This is an IMPORTANT action that I will need for this school year as a teacher to communicate with parents and students.
Using the existing email merge (in word) and having it send via outlook has been a very helpful feature. However, the ability to have an attachment as part of those emails is missing. Please add the ability to attached a file to your email merge.

There is currently no way to do a mail merge and add an attachment which is crazy. Please add this feature, it would be so simple and with out it the mail merge is seriously limited.
I am having constant problems and now a lack of confidence
in outlook and word mail merge. one minuet the signature needs to added in word and the next I have two signatures coming up! is this problem because I am using a Mac or is a problem with mail merge?
Yes, I am all for implementing this feature as it would be a very useful function when mass mailing.
We definitely need a mail merge feature for Mac users - seems inconceivable not to be able to create envelopes or mailing labels from Outlook Contacts.

Allow the preview feature for mail merge to include email addresses in the display too.
I could envision this as a "wizard" within outlook that allows you to paste in columns from an excel sheet or manually type them in. Then shows you your message and allows you to add in the personalized fields.
Apple needs to come to the table immediately on this. Microsoft Word will NOT allow email merge without using Outlook. But you cannot import your Address book from Apple to Outlook and thus cannot do an email merge. This is ever so frustrating for companies who need to email merge a document!!!
