Changing mail merge defaults

Is there a way to change several of the defaults on a mail merge?

For example....

Can I change the default in Step 1 of the Mail Merge Wizard from "Word Processor" to "Email"?  I NEVER merge to the Word Processor and only merge to emails. 



In step 3 of the Mail Merge Wizard, can I change the default from "Current Lookup" to "Current Contact"?  I SOMETIMES use the Current Lookup option but that is rare.  98% of the time I am using the Current Contact for mail merges.


Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, those defaults cannot be changed.  If you would like to see this functionality in a future version, please submit your suggestion as a Feature Request.
