How can I send a personalized email to individuals in a contact group in Outlook 2010? When I try to do this, I get a message that contact groups cannot be merged. There must be a way to do this. Thanks.

As far as I can see it doesn't work with Outlook contact groups so the recipients will have to be selected individually.

One work around is to chose all the recipients, add the merge fields then save the document. That way you would have a template for future use. You would just need to open the document, type the body of text and finish the merge.

Another option would be to set up the list of recipients in word itself so that you can use that list in the future.
