It helps us to send any information in the form of a letter to many recipients. now you have to know that why should use mail merge feature. and what is its benefit? For example, let us consider that you are working in the company. and someday your boss asking to send mail to all the employee of the company.Then what will you do? you can not send the email one by one to your employee.You have to send multiple mails at a little time. There are many alternatives of mail merge in the market or internet at free of cost. Then here we go.
