Subject: Is Notes Standard 8.5.2 "a MAPI-compatible e-mail program" ?
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Notes Client
Technical Area: Functionality
Word 2007/2010 mail merge now lets you output the merge results to email. With Notes 852 set as the default mail client for Windows it all works except for the part where it actually creates/sends the emails (no errors displayed). The help for Word (excerpt below) states that the e-mail program must be MAPI compatible. Anyone have this working or know if Notes is MAPI compatible?
FROM WORD HELP:
Use mail merge to send personalized e-mail messages to your e-mail address list
-You must have a MAPI-compatible e-mail program installed. The capabilities of Outlook MAPI (Messaging Application Program Interface) make it possible for Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Outlook to share information when sending the merged e-mail.
-You must use the same versions of Outlook and Word. If you are using Microsoft Office Word 2007, you must also use Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.
