I use Thunderbird, i wouldn't have any idea how to do any kind of mail in a word processor. And I don't know why I'd ever want to.Say you want to send an invitation by mail to your 10.000 friends. You simply write the letter once with "holes" within. Then you merge (hence the name) the letter and the missing data which is stored in a seperate "database" (LibO uses the "datasource" term). As a result you get 10.000 different letters, from just one. Of course, a private person might not use that feature frequently, but any company which wants to advertise does this very often.Especially if we talk about 10 000 friends. I don't even know ig I met 10 000 people all together in my whole life yet… I think I have like 10 friends… Johnny Rosenberg
Thanx everybody. Now I know what mailmerge is. I don't think I would ever need it. If I send mail to more than 5 people at once it would be a lot.
