    Default Mail Merge

    I need a documentation to show me how to mail merge with zimbra desktop client. I didn't find any documentation about this.

    Maybe I should ask this questions first:
    Am I able to do mail merge with using Word 2003/2007 with Zimbra Desktop Client?

    I am also interested in using Zimbra with MS Word for mail merge...

    Is this possible as of yet?

    It appears that Zimbra Desktop doesn't handle mail merge from Word. Neither does Zimbra Desktop have its own mailmerge feature.

    You should have a look at Bug 16684 - support for mail-merge functionality and vote for it/comment if appropriate.

    In the meantime, try using LibreOffice Writer instead of Microsoft Word. It will allow you to create a document, add contacts, and send it using your Zimbra server (or any other email server such as Gmail etc...)

    1 Install LibreOffice from
    2 Create the desired document
    3 Select MailMerge from the Tools menu, it will open the mailmerge wizard.
    4 Follow the options (including sending as an email attachment, or sending as the email body).
    5 Create a list of recipients - either from within the mailmerge wizard, or it will let you import recipients.
    If you wish to use contacts from Zimbra, export the relevant contacts to a .csv file (from within Preferences>Import/Export).
    6 Choose the mailmerge options
    7 Enter your Zimbra server log-in details when asked
    8 Send.

    Alternatively, you may want to try using the free software Thunderbird (which runs on any platform) with Word (I'm not sure how compatible it is).
