I am trying to do an e-mail merge in Microsoft Publisher 2010 (which appears to do mail merging like Microsoft Word) and I'm wanting a merged email address to automatically be hyperlinked in the resulting email.

For example, one of the merge fields could be "EmailAddress" with an example address being test@example.com. In the document, I would want the merge field "EmailAddress" to display as the default text in an hyperlink and also set the target of the hyperlink to "mailto:EmailAddress" (eg. mailto:test@example.com).

I can't figure out how to get Publisher 2010 to do that. I would think that it's possible, though. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated!


Well, let me answer my own question. On the Mailings tab of MS Publisher 2010 ribbon there is a button called "Insert Personalized Hyperlink". That does exactly what I was looking for. I can't believe I missed it before!
