I hope someone can help. I have an excel spreadsheet set up for what I thought would be an easy outlook mail merge but I was wrong!

Is there a way in which I can have a name inserted into the body of the email if it matches another cell (eg an email address)? Basically I've got to send an email out to a list of people but the email needs to have a person from their team in the email.
For example:
Dear John (merge field)
blah blah blah blah and we have identified «Name» as someone within your business etc etc.

Depending on who the recipient is, depends on the name that is inserted.

Any ideas greatly received :)

Mail merge can do that - you need to insert the field in the message body.
Hi Diane

Thank you for your response. I'm not sure how this can be done? I have inserted the field in the message body but this would change depending on the recipient.

Hi again! Sorry for so many messages.
I have another issue in that some of the emails need to go to several recipients ie one email, referring to a specific name in the body but to 3 people. I've tried putting all 3 emails in the one cell but it doesn't recognise the email addresses??
