How to send a bulk mailing by e-mail?

To embed the text in the body of the mail, instead of sending it as attached documents, the following steps are necessary:

  • Check for the connection: click Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice Writer chose Mail Merge E-mail. Click Test settings to check that the connection is working

For example, the connection might be to port 587 without SSL on smtp.mail.yahoo.com

  • Open Tools ▸ Mail Merge Wizard
  • Select the document that will be sent
  • Choose the type E-mail message
  • Select the address database and if necessary, check that each recipient has a valid address

Complete the following steps.

  • Choose Send merged document as E-Mail. The To area indicates E-mail address (if you enter something else, like Name or Surname, the send operation will fail).
  • Choose the setting to send an attached file or to insert the text into the body of the e-mail.

Clicking Properties opens a window into which you can enter the text of the message.

  • The window that opens allows you to check that all the e-mails have been sent successfully.
