Re: [tdf-discuss] Mail Merge to Email in Writer


I like the suggestion.

As the dev team has been trying to shrink the LO suite, and remove a
lot of bloat accumulated over the years, this is something that could
slash a lot of the footprint.

One of the concerns I have, though, is in terms of usability... would
asking the default mail client to handle thousands of emails make the
client freeze? Would it be automated nicely, so that the user doesn't
have to click on 'send' until their fingers fall off?
I don't have the answer to those questions... I am just giving my two cents.

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....
