If you want to use mail merge in Outlook, You would have to go to the mail merge toolbar first.

The mail merge toolbar would look like the image below:

Then, choose the Main Document Setup icon

It will pull up another window:

The choose the Open Data Source & Mail Merge Recipients – Use Mail Merge icon

You get different options when you use different icons to set up your merge.

Just choose the format, type, and set it up the way you want your mail merge to be.

Then you can send a trial merge just to make sure everything is set right.
