TIPS on Mail Merge in OpenOffice.Org (Linux).

Here are the TIPS for successful mail merging in Open Office. Please note that the OS is Linux here.
1. Open office mailmerge works well in the versions, 3.0.1 and 3.1.1.
2. Mailmerge depends on Java (JRE) and Python.
3. Best format of database is dBASE files.
4. Debian Packages of OpenOffice includes no Java in it. Hence there is need to install 
separately, in case of debian linux.
5. Email Account setup must be perfect in ooo-writer.
6. Test the internet connection before proceeding for email merge.
