Are any "privacy" or "antivirus" programs running at the time of the merge?
I don't offer any support for proper configuration of your protection software but note that many block such actions because many worms use this method to send emails. You have to know your tools and settings.
I am working on an XP and using word 2002 with outlook 2002.
I have been using the mail merge to email wizard, and up until this point it has all worked perfectly. But once I have clicked OK to complete the Merge, nothing happens.
I do use Mozilla Thunderbird for all my emails but set up my emails in Outlook Express, sent myself an email and received it, so that part seems to be working. It just won't send the mail merge. My wife tried the same thing on her work laptop and it went through ok.
The only thing that I don't get is it showing you it is sending the emails.
Any help I would appreciate!
