Is there any way to create a "personalized" template in Outlook 2007?

In Microsoft Word, you can specify form fields via Mail Merge, so you can start a letter like "Hello «FirstName»", and it will populate the «FirstName» field with data from the recipients list. Is there a way to do something similar with Outlook templates and the Global Address List?

The mail merge feature of Microsoft Word supports sending e-mail and using Outlook as a source for contact information. Simply use mail merge as you would normally but instead select "e-mail" instead of "letter" as the output format, and choose "Outlook contacts" as your recipient source.

For more information, refer to this support article from Microsoft.
