Default Mailmerge to email

I have recently purchased Office 2011 for MAC and, yesterday evening, set up a mailmerge in Word which was designed to output to email. Unfortunately, in a moment of tiredness probably, failed to notice that the Email Address was pointing to the wrong field so the whole thing failed. Fine. I went back in and corrected the error and everything worked as it should.

My problem now is that when I look at my Outlook screen there is a little yellow error triangle at the bottom right hand corner of the screen and clicking on it indicates that Outlook is still trying to send the failed emails on a regular basis, and, worse, when it's attempting to send them I get a beep for each one. Thank goodness there were only 13 of them on this occasion.

I have back into the document to see if the email address is pointing to the wrong field but the little email icon is greyed out.

I've also tried putting all the error messages in the trash can but they're soon replaced with a new set.

To preserve my sanity, I've muted my sound but that doesn't get rid of the underlying problem.

I suspect that deleting the Word document and starting again (no big deal) wouldn't solve the problem as it now seems to be in the hands of Outlook.

Your help would be most appreciated.

Kind regards.



Tony

HA !! Gotcha !!!

Found another Outbox lurking down the bottom of the panel with 13 items in it.

I think I may be sorted.

Kind regards
