  1. It all worked for me till the last step. Generate e-mail messages did not work. The button was not visible as an option. Merge to printer and merge to new document were there but the e-mail option was shaded and inoperable.

  2. Great Video comparing both platform.
    But I still does not work on my Mac.
    I start to wondering if there is a permission not allowed on my Outlook.

  3. In order for this to work you need to have outlook selected as your default email program. 

    Go to Outlook> Preferences – General then click the Make Default button. You may need to restart Word for the change to be recognized.

  4. Thank you. This was extremely helpful. I was tearing my hair out and then I happened across your tutorial. Done in a few minutes.

  5. Hello I am very new to mail merge.  I thought that you did an excellent job of explaining and I liked the way that you covered Macs also.

  6. Thank you for this fast and simple explanation. I love how you covered Mac and Windows at the same time. Thank you!!!

  7. This is a great tutorial. For some reason my "generate email" button is greyed out. Can you please advise on what I should do to get this button to activate?

  8. Hello, Im trying to email my merge but it won't allow for that option. Any words of advice in regards to why it's not allowing me to? Is there something that's not properly connected on my mac?

  9. Rankle I find this very confusing. Maybe next time make two tutorials – one for Windows and one for Mac. And talking slower would be helpful. I'm still trying to figure out how to do it. But thanks never the less
