Mail Merge now includes Company name in contact info

I recently reinstalled V6 and am using Mail Merge for first time since reinstall.  I've used it since 2002 and all of a sudden the outgoing email information reads like the following - "White, John at XYZ Corp."

 

Going through preferences to figure out how to modify or fix.  I do not want the company info to show.  I use Outlook 2007.  I was using Outlook 2007 before Act6 reinstall and it worked like a charm.  help

Love Act V6, hated 2005, V7, V9, V10 but now thinking about V11 on a new laptop with lots of ram

There isn't any preference setting, working as designed.

It never woprked that way before.  Or if it did, it hasn't in many years.  I regularly use mail merge function.  No way to modify this?

It did change, I forget just when and there isn't any way to change it.

This might depend on the version of ACT! ... are you using the same build (check in Help | about)? If earlier than 6.03, maybe try downloading and applying the update.

 

Actually, I'm surprised you have it working with Outlook 2007...  I assume you can't add the ACT! database as an address book?

 

If doing a lot of mail merges from ACT! 6.0, you should also try downloading MergeMaster! Pro - much faster and a lot of extra functions
