Mail Merge won't send emails - Outlook 2010

Q: Mail Merge won't send emails - Outlook 2010

I have two email accounts that I want to be able to switch between using outlook so that I can use one for general use and another for a mail merge.

When I run the mail merge, microsoft word 2010 looks like it performs the merge correctly, however no emails are sent to outlook.

I am using Word 2010, Outlook 2010, and Windows 7. The email accounts are gmail accounts (POP3).
I was able to mail merge before I set up multiple accounts, and I have been able to get multiple accounts to work on separate computers (not with the same email address's though).
Unlike other people's problems sending emails through mail merge, I am not able to send any emails out - not plain text nor HTML.
I have looked online and found a suggestion to run SCANPST.EXE, and it did not fix my problem. I have also read online that this maybe an unknow bug or issue.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Maybe there is something with office 2007 that my give clues to what may be wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have recently installed MS Office 2010 on the Desktop at home which is primarily used by my wife. I had already installed it on my laptop (used by me) with no problems. My wife has a gmail account/email address and, when installing I was prompted for her preferred email address and password.

So far so good.

Outlook worked correctly for about 24 hours, after which it continued to display her incoming emails but stopped sending.

When trying to send an email the mail goes into Outbox but then hangs up. It does not send, nor does clicking 'Send All' do anything.

This is a problem we had on an earlier version of Office (Outlook 2003), which we never did get properly sorted out. What is irritating is that, as I said, Outlook continues to work fine for me on my laptop (with an aol email account) but not for my wife with a gmail account. Neither of us has or uses a hotmail account.

Can anyone help?

I just got a new nice laptop dell computer (my old laptop running windows 7 64 bit and Office 2007 is all working fine - sending emails fine on a POP3 account).

The problem is, Outlook 2010 will not send emails with the same POP3 settings. I have been all over this with my ISP, changed the outgoing port from 587 to 25, changed my outgoing mail server to smtp.ipower.com to myusername.ipower.com. Nothing seems to help. My ISP swears it is a defect with outlook and windows 7, but how could that be?

Error I get when trying to send an email:
Task '[email protected] - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Hi! My emails were fine until about a week ago. Suddenly emails that I have marked to send are appearing in my Outbox with a "Draft" icon rather than the "Sending Message" one. When I then do Send and Receive, they don't go.
Opening them and then pressing send does nothing, but dragging them to another folder, opening them and then pressing send puts them back in the Outbox with the right icon. Send and Receive then transmits them. Not an earth shattering problem, but annoying.

I have recently upgraded to Office 2010 (from 07) and I perform a lot a mail merges. I have come across a few issues with this feature within 2010 and wondered if anyone has a solution. I am obviously running Windows 7.

Issue 1 - When performing the mail merge to emails (HTML), Word 2010 doesn't seem to recognise my IMAP email account, which is set as default in Outlook 10 it uses one of my other pop email accounts.
Is there any way to set my IMAP account as the default for mail merging?

Issue 2 - Once I have completed the email merge I then need to create them as a PDF, which in 2007 worked fine but the Acrobat addin in Word 10 doesn't do anything. (I do have Acrobat 8 prof installed as well) I have done a little research and can see that this is a problem but I need a solution to fix.
Otherwise I'll be reduced to uninstalling and re-install 2007!

Anyone with solutions please let me know.

Hey all,

I have this very weird issue on several machines using Outlook 2007/2010 + Exchange 2003. When in Windows Explorer I right-click a file (say, an xlsx file), choose Send To > Mail Recipient and, in the new email window, click the To button, the contact list opens but freezes for anywhere from several seconds to up to a minute. My machine is quite fast, thus the wait is fairly short, but on slower machines (E5400 + 4GB RAM) the wait can reach a minute in length. Sadly, the issue is quite frequent and I am able to reproduce it quite easily.

I don't use Outlook so I am unable to figure this one out.

My son uses Outlook 2010 and is having to go to some extra steps every time he wants to send a mail. Here's what is happening:
He composes or replies to a mail and clicks "Send".
It goes to Out Box and is not sent.
It sits in the outbox indefinitely, even for days as other mail is collected automatically every two minutes. He says he has Outlook 2010 configured to send on receive/check; but, it does not send.
In order to send that mail, he must open the Out Box and then open that mail (that is just sitting there unsent) and click "Send" again and then and only then does it get sent -- from Out Box.
This happens with all mail he sends.

Suggestions?

I must open Outlook 2010 before emails created with the right click menu from an Explorer window are sent.

This was not a problem with Outlook Express. I have changed internet providers to Verizon FiOS from Time Warner Cable.

I have "Send immediately when connected" checked (and I'm always connected),

I've sent the test emails through Account settings (no problems),

I tried setting the log on information in advanced settings (instead of using same info as incoming settings),

as well as turning off the "scan outgoing mails" with ESET.
I noticed "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication " is checked. If I uncheck this, the receive works but the send fails.

I tried Google and the forum search, but I can't find an answer.

Hello,

I have a new issue that has come up since we converted an Access database to 2007 file format.
Here is the history.

We have an access database that was created in the old file format. In that database there is a button that opens up word and a mail merge file. Word's mail merge then uses a query from the access database to populate the mail merge document.

We recently converted the Access database to the Office 2007 file format and now the merge process will not work.
I have tried to relink the files and have done some research and it appears that the DDE way of connecting is no longer used in Office 2007. I did finally get to the point where I could see the queries i needed but once I try to open that data source Word give me a general error that it can not open the data source.

How can I get these merge files working again?

PS. We are running Windows XP if that is needed.

We are quickly moving to office 2010 also but that uses the same file format as 2007 so I assume it won't be an issue. Any help you can give me would be GREAT!.

when i choose to send text or attachment - i get this security warning. even after pressing "allow" - nothing happens. (nothing = no trace of messages in outbox and no mail sent)

i know that: "If you choose a format other than HTML, an Outlook message may inform you that a program is trying to access e-mail addresses and send e-mail. This message is a security measure designed to protect against viruses that replicate through e-mail. To continue with the merge, select the Allow access for check box in the security warning dialog box, and then select the amount of time that you need to complete the merge. Click Yes. If you are prompted again, continue to click Yes until the merge is complete."

I am working in Microsoft Office Word 2010 on a 64 Bit Windows 7 OS. I am using Mail Merge. I am trying to make it so that if Field24 is not blank, that field will just populate. Otherwise, I need the system to look at the date the document is generated, i.e. today's date. If the date is 1/1 to 12/24, I need it to print "{ DATE \@ "yy" }-CH-". Otherwise (12/25 - 12/31), I need a prompt to pull up.

I have tried:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD Field24 } = "" "{IF {DATE \@ "MMdd" } < "1225" "{FILLIN "Case No.:" \o \d "13-CH" }" "{ MERGEFIELD Field24 }" }

And as a test:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD Field24 } = "" "{IF {DATE \@ "yyyyMMdd" } < "20121225" "{FILLIN "Case No.:" \o \d "13-CH" }" "{ MERGEFIELD Field24 }" }

I am having no issues if Field24 is populated. However, if Field24 is blank, nothing is pulling through with either of the above coding. Now, I am sure this is something I am doing, but there are several instances where what prints will be based on a date. Is it possible to do this, without delving into Macros (an area where I am completely clueless...)?

Update:

I found a little more information here: http://www.gmayor.com/formatting_word_fields.htm
Below is what the site has to say on the matter. It seems to agree with what I've done. I even tried to change my DATE field to a regular MERGEFIELD populated with a date and that did not work either. I do not understand what I am doing wrong here.
Testing for events that occur before or after a certain date

When running a mail merge, you may want to test for events that happen before or after a certain date. Mail merge does not convert dates to numbers, so if you cannot automatically derive a date number from the date in the data file, as you could in (say) Excel, a different plan is called for.
Let's say the date comes into Word in the format d/MM/yyyy or 1/10/2002 (1st October 2002) from a MERGEFIELD called Start_Date. In this example, we are looking to identify records with Start_Date entries before 1st October 2002.

The above would appear the logical check, but the check treats the date as a number and identifies that number as 1, which is the first part of the number before the slash '/'. All dates other than the first of the month will be greater than 1, so all will produce the result "False".
We therefore need to display the date in numbers that represent the date in a unique way by using the date mask yyyyMMdd which displays the date as a series of digits for year month and finally day, without any breaks. This is a number that the condi... Read more

MS Office Outlook sending emails but no emails to send? I have added a few new accounts to my outlook and have had nothing but problems since. It is important that I keep these emails in my outlook, because I work from home and need to access these accounts. I have recently noticed, whenever I hit send receive, the number rises everyday, which now has me concerned. Each account has a different amount "sending", but nothing is in the outbox. IE: account A: sending 1 of 135, Account B: sending 1 of 1020 and so on. I also read online somewhere that if I was a torrent user, that "is" my problem, but I have stopped using it for weeks and there is no traffic going in or out, and I've turned the program off completely.

I've used Outlook for years, with many accounts and have never had problems. I've noticed more problems since this 'sending' message has started. I also noticed, I was the ONLY one at work not getting any SPAM for at least 2 yrs, UNTIL, I took a few days off, went back to work and BAM, hit with SPAM. Its a bloody nuisance because my accounts are linked with "rules and alerts", so if one is infected, all others follow behind! Has one or all of my accounts been compromised? If so, can it be fixed?

Lets not overlook the obvious, it may indeed be memory.

Running Windows 7 machine with Office 2010 Professional. Just discovered that from Word I can send out mass emails (I am the email blaster for our organization) that show up in email as JUST addressed to the recipient without using bcc. Word 2010 BOMBS 75-90% of the time when I click on MAILINGS, Start Mail Merge, Email messages. If I do happen to get past there, when I click on Select Recipients Word bombs, then reboots. Very frustrating since each message I send out must be sent 3 times to get all of our people (more than 50 messages at a time are forbidden by my ISP).

Obviously Word and Outlook are both 2010.

Any fixes or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!

Microsoft no longer providing online forums for support (as far as I can tell), I'll ask here because I can't think of anywhere else.  I have a Win7 Pro 64 bit desktop running Office 2010 Professional.  Today I needed to do a mail merge, letters and envelopes, in Word 2010.  This was the first time I ever tried that.  My data was in an Excel 2010 spreadsheet.
 
The letters printed beautifully.  When I tried to print the envelopes, the first thing it gave me was a little printer configuration window.  In the window, I had to change the way the printer handles envelopes, because my elderly HP Photosmart C7280 printer doesn't handle them the way Word thinks envelopes should be handled.  Having changed that, I clicked on the OK and immediately got this error:

In order to apply the selected envelope options, Word must delete the current contents of "<filename>."  Any unsaved changes to this document will be lost.
I couldn't get away from that, so I clicked "OK" and my mail merge document vanished, leaving only headers and footers.  There was nothing to print envelopes from.  I could not make it work. Does anyone have a solution for this??  Has anyone ever seen it?
 

A:Word 2010 Mail merge issue

Mail merge in Word can be a bit fiddly and the details keep changing between versions but it generally works - eventually.
 
The only suggestion I can think of is, when you come to the 'create new document' bit in the merge, you go into 'File - Page set-up' and set the template envelope to match the printer's settings rather than leaving it until you press 'Merge' or 'Print'.

Use the "Next Record" rule. This works in the first row, but the merge reads left to right so when it gets to the next row, it's screwed up. I can't find a way to tell it to read down the column and then move to the next record instead of reading across the row.
Merge to a directory. I can create a table with one column, but when I merge to the directory, it stacks the columns on top of each other. There will only be three records for each page, so even if I use a three column layout, there's enough room to stack the columns instead of showing them side by side. Also, since there's so much other data on the page, there's no good way to fit the merge to a directory information within it.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm attaching a sample document and the cells in yellow are the ones I need to merge. Thanks.

Nevermind, I see what you are trying to do. I am not sure how you would approach this since it is not your typical mail merge.

I have Office 2010. I am trying to do a Mail Merge with 650 addresses on an envelope. All the fields merge fine except one. The field is Street Type (Dr, St, Ave, etc.). The field returns a value of time. 12:00:00 AM. The field settings on the excel spreadsheet are for Text.

There are no leading or trailing spaces in the field.

All other fields merge just fine and have the same settings.

Any advice?

Hi
I used Word 2007 for mail merge to send about 1000 mails to my prospects
After I click the Merge and Complete button, for every email it sends, outlook pops a warning
"Some program is trying to access to send email. If it is not ok, click deny and check your virus settings ..."

I am forced to click "Allow" for every mail, this is too much to take for the number of mails I am sending
Is there a way to disable this warning system when I am doing a mail merge

Kindly help

Thanks and regards

My situation is that i am using outlook 2010 pst from past one year. I have split the pst files few months back and now left with two separate pst's. But, now due to some reason i need to merge two pst files together?

How can i do that by maintaining the folder hierarchy and filtering the duplicates, is there is any way possible? please let me know!
 

A:Is there any way i can merge two Outlook 2010 PST File?

I don't use outlook myself, but I found this on the Microsoft site and it looks like it fully answers your question.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/o...rom-an-outlook-data-file-pst-HA102505743.aspx

It's probably worthwhile making a copy of the two pst files before trying the merge, just in case it doesn't go as planned.

P.S. In future it's better to pick the subforum related to your question, this should perhaps have gone to Web and Email. That way you're more likely to find someone who knows the answer instead of some programmer who's never even used the software you're struggling with.

Can anyone advise me if there are limits anywhere to the number of e-mails I can send out simultaneously when using a mail merge to e-mail? I have set up and tested the mail merge and it all works fine, but I don't want to launch the real one only to get problems. I have a mailing list with 1,600 addresses, I'm using Outlook and Word 2011 for Mac to do this.
 

A:Mail merge to e-mail using Word / Outlook 2011 for Mac

One of the problems your going to face is getting labeled as a spammer. If your sending these internally it may not be a problem. The standard answer for this is to Outsource this if your sending over 100. Good decision not to launch the real one yet.

I have windows XP Professional.

In Outlook 2002 I have set up my Inbox to group my e-mails by Subject. I am able to merge two different email subject lines into one by using drag and drop. When I do this the subject line I am dragging changes into the name of the subject line I am dropping it into.
I can not do this in Outlook 2003, it doesn't allow me to drag anything. Is there any way you know of to be able to accomplish the same thing as in Outloook 2002.
Tks and rgds

Computer: Dell Inspiron 6000 with 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor and 2 GB of RAM.

Windows version: XP/Pro SP 3 (V. 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp.080413-21111 : SP 3)

Word version 2002.

I have 2 problems with using the Outlook version 2000 Mail Merge feature.

Problem 1:

I want to Mail Merge Outlook contacts into Mailing Labels. however, there is a field missing from the available fields after I complete the all the steps.

I tried this 2 ways:

1. All contacts in current view/All contact fields

2. All contacts in current view/Contact fields in current view--after adding the Categories field to the Current View

I also tried adding a user-defined field and then tried both choices above.

In all cases,the Categories field or user-defined field is missing from the available fields: missing from the Insert Merge Fields and missing from the Mail Merge Recipients dialog box.

Here is the sequence I use:

Open Outlook

Click on Contacts shortcut (or View/Go To/Contacts)

Tools/Mail Merge

Select All contacts in current view/All contact fields from the dialog box choices. Select Mailing Labels from the Document type drop down box.

Click OK

Click OK on the warning message: "Outlook has created a MailMerge document...."

In the Mail Merge Helper dialog box, click on Main Document/Setup

Select the label product/type from the Label Options dialog box. Click OK

Click on Data Source/Get Data/Use Address Book. Select Outlook Address Book. Note that the Categories field is not include... Read more

Live Mail was working last night, but today I get the error message "The message can not be sent. Type an email address for one or more recipients in the To, Cc, or Bcc box."

I tried to enter address into all 3 boxes and none sent my email. I have never come across this problem before, perhaps some of you have or know how to fix this problem. I will appreciate all suggestions. I need help quickly because I have important mail to be sent. I have no other email client to use in it's place.

Thanks,

If it only has done it on this message I would copy the data delete it, and re-crate a new message.

If it happens on all messages what are the error messages.

Whats the system specs and OS?

A:Windows Mail will not let me send out any emails

thank you to everyone's suggestions.  I finally figured out what to do last night (thanks to trying all these great ideas) and it's working.
 
I think part of it was my fault (only somewhat tech literate - more newbie in most catagories).  Here is what I did in case it will help any other users:
 
in the smpt line I entered:  smpt.comcast.net
and then i changed my port from 25 to 587 which is what comcast recommends for setting up Thunderbird... I figured if it works for that maybe it would work for windows mail, too and low and behold...success!!!
 
I hope this helps other users.

I am having a problem with Vista Windows Mail. When I compose an email and use ‘Send’ it goes into the Outbox and sits there. If I then use ‘Send & Receive’ it doesn’t send either. To get it to send I have to shut down Windows Mail (with the red cross) and restart it again, then use ‘Send & Receive’ when it will send straight away. Even though the message is sent and appears as that in the Sent box, the Outbox file on the left hand menu shows emboldened is if there is a message sitting there, but there isn’t as it has been sent. The box ‘send messages immediately’ is ticked in Tools>Options>Send Tab.
I just wondered if anyone has any suggestions how to cure this. Is it possible to uninstall Windows Mail and re-install it?
