How to: Send the Mail-Merge Document as an E-Mail

The following example describes how to send the mail merge result as an e-mail.

Refer to the Mail Merge topic for an example on how to create a mail-merge document. Follow the steps below to export the result as a Microsoft® Outlook® mail item.

Expanded Create an Exporter Class

  1. Add a reference to the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook assembly.
  2. Create an exporter class that implements the IUriProvider interface. Declare the class constructor as follows:

  3. Implement the Export method to retrieve the document text in HTML format and convert it into the message body. Subscribe to the RichEditControl.BeforeExport event.

  4. Specify the HtmlDocumentExporterOptions.Encoding property in the BeforeExport event handler.

  5. Implement the interface's IUriProvider.CreateCssUri and IUriProvider.CreateImageUri methods. In this example, the IUriProvider.CreateImageUri method retains the document images and attaches them to the mail message.

Expanded Send the result to the Microsoft® Outlook® application

Declare a new Outlook application object and create a new mail item in the main class. Create a new RichEditMailMessageExporter instance and pass the RichEditControl and the MailItem objects as parameters. Call the Export method.

In this example, the document is sent as a mail item on a "Send Mail" button click.
