How can I use e-mail merge with other e-mail addresses in Contact?

I am using ACT 2009 (11.0) to keep track of volunteers applying to our program.  As part of their application I ask candidates to give 3 references (name, e-mail).  I put that data in to separate fields (i.e. reference1_name, reference1_email, etc.).  

 

What I would like to do now is to send an e-mail merge to each of the references instructing them what they need to do next.  If I need to send one e-mail with the 3 references in the BCC I'd also be happy with that.  

 

The problem that I'm running into is that I don't know how to tell ACT to use "reference1_email" for the address instead of what it normally uses, which is simply E-mail (of the candidate).

 

Any help is much appreciated!

You will need a 3rd party add-on product to do this, or a custom program designed for  your specific needs.

 

Merging to additional email fields is not something ACT! can do just out of the box.
