Mail merge reports go here.
Meta-bug -> NEW
bug 101452 for most "wrong page numbering" info, also in the preview
adding Bug 103375 - MAILMERGE: unpredictable failures: sometimes looses embedded image, or not all mails sent, when e-mailing as pdf
adding Bug 103363 - Outgoing mailserver (set in Tools > Options > Writer > Mail merge Email) not found
I am converting from Ms Office
As the direct connection to SMTP doesn't seem it is ever going to work on the in gmail SMTP (and others) probably due to the way gmail does its security, is there a way to mass email merge through the email client as Writer does for single emails? (and BTW this is what I was used to in MS Office)
Linunx Mint 20.3 Cinnamon, Libre Office 18.104.22.168 Thunderbird 91.8.1
What I want to do:
I think i have worked out the way writer works with calc via base to create a merged doc. My spreadsheet contains data with initials surname email and various others containing cash amounts.
(Base doesn't like spaces in the column headers / field names of the calc sheet, I think this is the same with many dbase apps)
Using calc as the data I create a registered database in base, selecting the tab name with the data table I want, then create two queries,
for printing sorted on the email field (Like "No Email"),
for emailing sorted on the email field (Like "*@*.*) .
Printing works no problems, but email is as many have described with LO freezing and having to be shut down.
This is a so-called META bug to collect bugs that are related to mail-merge, the individual bugs should be reported separately, and added to the "Depends on" field of this bug (or this META bug should be added to the Blocks field of the individual bug report). Please do that instead.
