Evening all,

I am trying to do a simple mail merge and send to email from a list created in Excel.

After trying for ages with Mac Mail it is apparent that it does not support the feature with Word, so I have installed Entourage and made it my default mail software.

I am seemingly doing all the right things within word to create the mail merge, I then 'generate email messages' and 'send to inbox' and the emails appear in my outbox in Entourage within the 'On My Computer' account.

The following error occurs:

5.1.2 or other punctuation after the recipient's email address

Error: -17099

I have done numerous searches online and nothing seems to help. The email addresses are all correct. Have even tried doing 1 by 1 in the hope it would identify the problem email - they all fail!

Any ideas as to why this is not working? It should be a simple mail merge to email after all.

Word 2008 - Mac OS X 10.6.7

Appreciate any help!!
QUOTE Thanks
