File|Send → Document as E-mail (or as OpenDocument attachment or MS Office attachment or as PDF attachment) will open your mail-client (if it is supported[1]).

In Windows, the application must be configured as default MAPI application.

On Linux, you need to configure it in Tools|Options → Internet → E-Mail

To send mail-merge documents via email, you need to setup a smtp server in Tools|Options → LibreOffice Writer → Mail Merge E-Mail

Mail merges via email are sent out by LibreOffice directly, and not via your email-program.

[1] If it is not supported, and reasonably wide-spread, then feel free to file a feature request. You can have a look at the known programs for linux in /opt/libreoffice3.5/program/senddoc

what does it mean "in Windows, the application must be configured as default MAPI application". Which application are you talking about? Using Windows 8 here--wife's computer; mine uses TB and works fine. I have set all the deafults as best as I understand them....Gene

well - on windows any mapi compliant one should work. for non-windows: http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/shell/source/unix/misc/senddoc.sh

google search brings up this: http://community.pmail.com/files/folders/pegadd/entry26729.aspx it doesn't use mapi, so it might work for you.
