Did you know you can send mass personal emails from within Microsoft Word? Many people CRM software for this function, but if mass communication is not a regular part of your job, Mail Merge inside of Word is a great option. Here is how to make multiple emails look personal to every recipient, without having to leave your document.

How to send mass email in Microsoft Word

  1. In Word, type or paste your email
  2. Select Mailings from the toolbar
  3. Select Start Mail Merge (drop-down menu)
  4. Click Email Messages from the drop-down menu
  5. Click Select Recipients to either upload your contacts or manually type in recipients
  6. Select Insert Merge Field and choose First Name or desired option

Whether you are sending your message to a large list of people or just a handful of colleagues, it is always a good idea to make sure your grammar and spelling are on point.
