I've got some code that uses MailMerge to email documents. It works. However, the password is stored in registrymodifications.xcu in clear text.

Trying to move forward

I cleared the password from registrymodifications.xcu by

    Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Writer -> Mail Merge E-mail -> Server Authentication

and deleting the contents of the password field.

The line in registrymodifications

changed from

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Writer/MailMergeWizard"><prop oor:name="MailPassword" oor:op="fuse"><value>XXXXXXX YYYYYYY</value></prop></item>


<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Writer/MailMergeWizard"><prop oor:name="MailPassword" oor:op="fuse"><value></value></prop></item>

I then changed my macro to include the MailMerge property OutServerPassword. As in the code snippet below

    oMailMerge = CreateUnoService("")
    oMailMerge.DocumentURL =  ConvertToUrl(strSelectedTemplate)
    oMailMerge.DataSourceName =  "MySQLDataBase"
    oMailMerge.CommandType = 0        'Command

    oMailMerge.Command = "MySQLDataBase.tbl_temporary"
    oMailMerge.OutputType =
    oMailMerge.Subject = strTitle
    oMailMerge.AddressFromColumn = "Email_Address"
    oMailMerge.OutServerPassword="XXXXXXX YYYYYYY"

    oMailMerge.SendAsHTML = True


When I run the script it fails with the following error message box

BASIC runtime error.
An exception occurred
Message: Mail merge failed. Sorry, no further information available..

What am I doing wrong?

Has anyone else got this working?
