You will only need to have an Excel document at hand, which will have in one of its columns all the personal data necessary for the creation of said correspondence, which must include the e - email.

What does this process consist of?

When we talk about mail merge we refer to a process in which all the data found in an external list is used to be inserted into a email previously selected and modified in order to facilitate the data entry process.



This would create a personalized letter or card, similar in structure, but different in content. All this will depend on the taste and needs of each one at the time of sending said correspondence.

This element is particularly useful when a person needs to send a large amount of emails and they in turn need to be sent with various different specifications. It is widely used by executives as well assistants, to facilitate their work within the office. It is practically a link that exists between Word and Excel.
