Hi Stuart,

You have obviously done a mail merge on LibreOffice before using e-mail.

Yes, I have, but I would state from the start, that in previous
incarnations of LO, it was not a happy experience :-/ I am not certain
that all of the problems have been ironed out in the latest versions of
LO (3.4.5 or the future 3.5).

Have you tried sending merged e-mails such that LibreOffice mail merge is
used to compose the /body/ of the message? The only way I know to do that is
by using the Mail Merge Wizard. The wizard does not launch an e-mail client.
But then again, JavaMail is not an e-mail client. It is an API written in

AFAIK, using Writer to create the body of the message and then send is
still buggy. I seem to recall that it uses the XSimpleMail API of LO :

The server settings that LO uses to send the mail are configured in Options
LibreOffice Writer >> E-mail. You would ideally go about setting the SMTP
server in the same way you would do it in a full e-mail client. However,
this component does not run as smoothly as it does in Apple Mail or
Thunderbird. This script at least at one point invoked the JavaMail API.

Perhaps the flags SimpleMailClientFlags are incorrectly set in your
version / configuration ?

There are also a few known bugs :
