    Creating mail/merge but using yahoo or gmail instead of the Outlook default.

    I can create an excel file of the data I want to use for a mail merge email but I always get Outlook as the mail server. Is it possible to use yahoo or gmail instead of outlook? Word mail merge does the same thing.

    AFAIK, if you use CDO to send mail you don't need an email program at all because you would be interacting directly with the mail server. Whether or not those providers would give you the information you need or allow you to use their servers in that manner would be another thing, and I doubt it. If you are dealing with a workplace issue, you probably have access to the company server. I'm thinking you might be asking your question because you're thinking along the lines of email applications/providers rather than the server machines themselves.
    - "doesn't work" is no help. Post err msgs and where.
    - Use code tags for code/sql. Implement changes in copies of your database.
