Sorry for the length, but I’m trying to provide as much diagnostic
info as I can.
I’m trying to do email merge on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop with LO 126.96.36.199.
I started using this:
as a tutorial.
Everything goes well, including connection the the SMTP server under Test.
I then get to hitting the “Send E-mail Messages” button. This does nothing.
In particular, the tutorial says I should see an “E-Mail Merged Document” window
in which I can specify the column of the table containing email addresses for
This was started from a terminal window that shows stuff sent to stderr. I’ve yet
to find any other location for an error log, but I’m looking.
My second attempt started with directions in for LO 7:
Unfortunately, this doesn’t document merging emails. I winged it from
there. (Was merging emails ever tested? If so, why not documented?)
This got further because it had me led me down the File > Wizards > Address Data Source path, so the spreadsheet got converted into .odb format and got registered.
Now the “E-Mail Merged Document” window pops up for me to fill in To: and Subject:,
but when I click “Send Documents” I get a stay-on-top notification that “The connection to the outgoing server has been established” and that “0 of 3 emails sent”, but “Emails not sent:0”. The application is completely frozen at that point. The Details, Pause, and Cancel buttons are dead and the other LO offices are greyed out.
