I have Office 365 so write my letter using Word, the mailing list is Excel and the email client is Outlook.

I have 6 different email accounts for different roles in my life.

When I do a mail merge it insists on using the Microsoft email account.

How can I select which account it should use each time?

I've never used Office 365. But in the previous versions, after you've set up all the accounts and create a new outgoing e-mail. THen there's a small arrow on the [From] button. When you click that you can select which account you want the email to originate from.

Try setting the desired address as your preferred when trying this merge?

Sadly that does not do anything with Mail Merge. It changes the email address that I send normal emails from but not the address the sysytem uses when merging a Word Docx and an Excel address list and then mailing the results.

Do you have your outlook set up using pop or imap type?

What are the email domain (the part after the @) that you have and want to use?

IMAP.
It is sending merged mail from my Hotmail address.
I would like to be able to send from my Gmail address

I have found nothing that shows that Gmail works with mail merge.
