Default mail merge takes and age

Hi newbie here, I am trying to do a mail merge for a 3rd party. All seems ok but the sending of mails from outlook is taking hours...there are 1300 records (email addresses). Does anyone have an idea how it cam be sent at one instead of 1300 seperate mails...



thanks in advance wb

ADMIN NOTE: Moved from Word forum as question is related to Outlook!

Unfortunately, if the letters have all been personalised (hence, I presume, the mail merge) with different names, etc. - then they have to be sent as individual emails. The only way to send one email to multiple people is if they are going to receive EXACTLY the same letter - word for word - without ANY personalisation. (i.e. Dear all, lalala!)

Choice is yours!

Hope that clarifies things!
