How will you use Mail Merge in the future?

Mail Merge is a very helpful program that can be used for many things in the future. I can use it in place of writing various letters. It saves time and is super easy to use. In class, mail merge was used to replace words in a letter so we dont have to re-type it. It was fast and easy and very helpful. I think it should be preferred to someone that works in an office, or a business person that is constantly re-writing things. (:
