If the Easy Mail Merge toolbar does not appear in your Outlook main menu then here is the solution.

Right click on the tool bar and check if Easy Mail Merge is checked among the visible tools. If it is not among the items to chose from then Check if Easy Mail Merge is disabled. To do this go to Outlook->Help->About Microsoft Office Outlook and press the Disabled Items button. If Easy Mail Merge is on the list then select it and press Activate button.

Hello,

I am running Microsoft Outlook 2003 SP1.

Easy mail merge works up until a point. When I am authoring the email message, if I click to another window (e.g. Microsoft Word or even another Outlook window or the desktop, so the authoring window loses focus) , when I return the focus to the authoring window, the Easy mail merge toolbar is GONE from that window.

I can go to the Toolbar menu for that window and see that the Easy mail merge toolbar is un-checked. If I then re-check it, the toolbar does reappear. HOWEVER, after it reappears none of the buttons on the toolbar do anything.

The only way I can use the product is if I go through the wizard, select my contacts, author the message (without ever clicking outside of the window) and immediately click send. If I lose focus on the window in anyway, the toolbar disappears and I have to start the wizard over again.

Please help me fix this problem!

Thank you,

Drew

What 3rd party Outlook add-ins are you using, except for Easy Mail Merge?

Also, did you setup Outlook to use MS Word to compose emails?

I am having precisely the same problem. I'm using the following 3rd party Outlook products, as far as I can tell / remember. I was not having this problem until recently.

eyecall (whatever that is)
AVG
itunes (apparently)
OggsyncOutlook (pretty sure I was having problem before this one was installed)

How can I tell what else?

Thanks

Hi,

Did this problem occur after you have installed a certain add-in or after you have changed any Outlook settings?
Have you tried right-clicking the toolbar ? Is Easy Mail Merge listed there?
Please go to Help->About MS Outlook->Disabled Items and see if Easy Mail Merge is listed there. If so ,please select it and click Enable.
Also , please make sure that the options "Use MS Word to edit email messages" and "Use MS Word to read Rich Text email messages" are not checked. You can find these options in Tools->Options->Mail Format.

Kind regards.

Unfortunately I cannot recall which add in I installed that has resulted in the problem. A vague memory is that it may be related to AVG free version.

The toolbar is listed, and while selecting it makes it appear, the buttons don't do anything. As for MS Word, I have had these options checked for some time, and have grown accustomed to the familiar interface. In the past, there has been no conflict.

Hi,

Most likely the problem is caused by the fact that those two options are checked. Please uncheck them in order for Easy Mail Merge to work properly.

Kind regards.

Well, this seems to have worked! I will miss the familiar interface and options.

Thanks
