    Default Mail Merge

    I need a documentation to show me how to mail merge with zimbra desktop client. I didn't find any documentation about this.

    Maybe I should ask this questions first:
    Am I able to do mail merge with using Word 2003/2007 with Zimbra Desktop Client?

    It appears that Zimbra Desktop doesn't handle mail merge from Word. Neither does Zimbra Desktop have its own mailmerge feature.

    You should have a look at Bug 16684 - support for mail-merge functionality and vote for it/comment if appropriate.

    In the meantime, try using LibreOffice Writer instead of Microsoft Word. It will allow you to create a document, add contacts, and send it using your Zimbra server (or any other email server such as Gmail etc...)

    1 Install LibreOffice from libreoffice.org
    2 Create the desired document
    3 Select MailMerge from the Tools menu, it will open the mailmerge wizard.
    4 Follow the options (including sending as an email attachment, or sending as the email body).
    5 Create a list of recipients - either from within the mailmerge wizard, or it will let you import recipients.
    If you wish to use contacts from Zimbra, export the relevant contacts to a .csv file (from within Preferences>Import/Export).
    6 Choose the mailmerge options
    7 Enter your Zimbra server log-in details when asked
    8 Send.

    Alternatively, you may want to try using the free software Thunderbird (which runs on any platform) with Word (I'm not sure how compatible it is).
