Can't add an Outlook contacts folder to a mail merge recipients list in Word


When you use mail merge in Microsoft Word, you discover that you cannot add a new Microsoft Outlook contacts folder to the recipients list. Specifically, the Show this folder as an e-mail address book option may be disabled for the folder.


This behavior may occur after you synchronize a Microsoft SharePoint list with Outlook 2013.


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Start Outlook.
  2. Right-click the contacts folder that you want, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Outlook Address Book tab.
  4. Select the Show this folder as an e-mail address book option.

You can now add the folder to the recipients list in a Word mail merge.
