No crash for me but an error message:
LibreOffice n'a pas pu se connecter au serveur de courrier sortant. Vérifiez vos paramètres système et les paramètres de LibreOffice. Vérifiez le nom du serveur, le port et les paramètres des connexions sécurisées
<class 'AttributeError'>: 'bytes' object has no attribute 'encode', traceback follows

  /home/jbf/LibO/master/solver/unxlngx6.pro/installation/opt/program/mailmerge.py:107 in function connect() [self.server.login(user, password)]

Tested with Version (Build ID: a31f703366b89abcb8cda1321163c596fc8e556) under Ubuntu 12.04 x86-64

Sorry, "crash" is not the appropriate term.

Ok, changed the summary accordingly.

Thank you.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I've got this:
LibreOffice could not connect to the outgoing mail server. Check your system's settings and the settings in LibreOffice. Check the server name, the port and the secure connections settings
<class 'smtplib.SMTPException'>: SMTP AUTH extension not supported by server., traceback follows
  /home/julien/compile-libreoffice/libo/solver/unxlngx6/installation/opt/program/python-core-3.3.0/lib/smtplib.py:594 in function login() [raise SMTPException("SMTP AUTH extension not supported by server.")]
  /home/julien/compile-libreoffice/libo/solver/unxlngx6/installation/opt/program/mailmerge.py:107 in function connect() [self.server.login(user, password)]

On 3.6, it's ok.

I use an SMTP without authentification (since I use the box provided by my provider to connect)
