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

If this was a vote.
I agree it needs to be done.
A major idea that needs to be rethought.
It would work better if it just worked for email clients and there would be
probably less code 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

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....
