Version: Build ID: 7556cbc6811c9d992f4064ab9287069087d7f62c Win 7 SP1 x86

-UPDATE also confirmed on macOS version on Sierra 10.12.4

Doing a mail merge via a connected .ods spreadsheet

When sending to e-mail recipients, the merge sends the document created for the first contact (row 1) to multiple recipients.

Other recipients do not get their own merge, they get the document intended for the first contact.

This is related to the same behaviour seen when attempting to save multiple merge documents (reported in another question), but the problem is masked by the fact that the last contact in the spreadsheet is never sent an e-mail (reported in yet another question).

Fails if either HTML or 'Adobe PDF' as attachment (with custom salutation) is selected.

Is this fixed in any earlier or later version ?

AH, I have a related problem : On my system Libre ONLY sends to the first recipient, nothing to everyone else.

Hoping that there is an explanation and solution to this one.
