I use an odt file and a database based on calc for mailing on Ubuntu 18.04.
No problem for printing the results but when I want send the emails nothing append. The sending hangs.
I've verified the Internet Options and all seems good. I can send the .odt by email so this configuration is OK.
Same problem under 6.4.2 rc2, 6.4.7 and 126.96.36.199.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare an .odt document with fields coming from a calc file. I use conditionnal fields.
2. Clic on the icon for mailmerge
3. I select one recording in order to test.
4. Writer generates all the records but it's not necessary.
5. An info box appears to show the evolution of the sending but nothing append, no details, the bar progress stays at the beginning.
Nothing appends. No sending with the info box always displayed and doesn't changing, it's hanging.
The emails should be sent.

Connection test OK with smtp account
Connection test is OK with the smtp account in the Internet options.
This problem occurs only when you select a range of email.
If we send all the documents by email, there's no problem.

You are aware that "Mail Merge" functionality goes directly via SMTP server and you need to prepare settings in Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Writer -> Mail Merge Email. The default email client is *not* involved in "Mail Merge"

Problem when choosing a range of emails.
The problem is not with the parameters because it's possible to send all the mails but when you choose a range of emails, that's not working.
