[tdf-discuss] Mail Merge to Email in Writer

I had cause the other day to do a Mail Merge to Email in Writer.
I was horrified to discover that the Mail Merge to Email function does NOT call the default email client, but uses an in-built smtp function within Writer. The major problem with that as far as I can see is that there is NO RECORD ANYWHERE of the emails sent by that process. Surely in the days of Sarbanes-Oxley and other legislation that is an appalling omission? Wouldn't it be far easier to call the default email client rather than use some in-built sending mechanism, just like it does if you use the File-Send-Document as Email?

Secondly (and this is a usage comment not a plea for a change of function!)) using a Gmail account in this function causes LO to become non-responsive - it doesn't like the SSL function....
