I have been sending individual emails to roughly 400 of my clients and perspective clients per month.  I have been sending them one by one so I could personalize it. I need to be able to do the following.  

 

Include the first name of my client after "Good Afternoon _______ "   in the body of the email.

 

Select 1 of my 3 business email addresses from my Microsoft Outlook 2007 Imap emails.

 

Include 2 PDF documents.  

 

Using mail merge via  Microsoft Word does not give these 3 options from what I can find.  This would save me so much time if I can send personalized mass emails to my clients.  Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I believe what you may want to do is consider creating a template in outlook 2007 that can do just what you are describing.

 

Here are some links to help you out.

A simple google search returned this:

see if any of those help. They all mention adding an attachment with mail merge.
