I'm not sure what mailmerge is, I'm not overly familiar with OpenOffice

Jeff! Mate!  Mailmerge is as old as the hills, even my C=64 word
processors did it.  Its where you put custom fields into a form letter
based on a database, thus generating 'n' targetted letters.

Anyway this is a question for open office people.  oo might do it, i
doubt staroffice would talk directly to evo.

evolution maillist  -  evolution lists ximian com

In open office you set evolution as a data source then use the data source you create for mail merge. This is NOT a evolution question though its an open office question (so email me off list if you need more details). I've not tried it with any other kind of word proscessor. (anyone have any idea why the Catlog data doesn't get imported along with the rest) a related question, is there any easy way to export Evolution data to a ldap server?
