[color=darkblue]When using Outlook's own mail merge feature, I first create an MS-Word file template with all the dynamic fields. I can then apply to this template different contact lists.
With "Easy Mail Merge for Outlook" I would like to do the same. I would like to create a message template and apply to it different recipients on different occasions.

Can this be done with "Easy Mail Merge for Outlook"?

Thanks.[/color]

Hi,

Using Easy Mail Merge, you firstly define your Contacts source, then you create the mail template and apply dynamic fields.

Regards,
Bogdan

Thanks Bogdan. Perhaps I should rephrase my question.
Every time I use Easy Mail Merge I must re-create the email message using the Easy Mail Merge editor.

Lets assume I have a message (with dynamic fields) that must send ten time a day, but each time to different recipients.
With Easy Mail Merge I need to re-create the message every time. I would like to:
1. use a pre-defined message template.
OR
2. import text into the message editor.

Can this be done?

Thanks.

Currently, the only solution is to copy the email message and paste it to a regular Outlook email, then save the email to an Outlook folder (like on Drafts). Then, when you will create a new session, copy the saved message from there and paste it into the mail merge message.

We are working on a new version of Easy Mail Merge which will allow you to reuse existing message templates.

Kind regards,
Bogdan
