Mail merge

Use mail merge to create mass mailings that you individualize for each recipient. You can add individual elements to any part of a label, letter, envelope, or email, from the greeting to the entire document, even images. Word automatically fills in the fields with recipient information and generates all the individual documents. In this course we’ll start with email, then move on to letters and envelopes.

Mail merge (3:51)
To show how mail merge works, let's start with an email message. You start with a main document, attach a list of recipient information, and add mail merge fields. Then Word automatically fills in the fields with recipient information and generates all the individual documents.

Print letters with mail merge (3:56)
So now that you have the basics of mail merge, let’s try some different options, including printing letters. You can find everything you need on the Mailings tab.

Print envelopes with mail merge (3:55)
You create mail merge envelopes the same as email messages or letters. First, click File and close the current document. Make sure to save it, then go to File, click New and open a blank document. Watch this video to learn more.
