http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14086#p66444 merged email problem - when email address is single letter domain name (like firstname.lastname@example.org) the email merge fails that address. Quote from ACKNAK on user forum: "When I enable debugging output from the python mailer script, it's clear that OOo is not even contacting the outgoing mail server with the q.com addresses; OOo just fails them before even trying to send them." Contact me directly for my private email address on q.com for test purposes if necessary.

@OS: See the thread of the given link at the description. The problem with the one letter domain is confirmed, but I'm not able to evaluate this. The part with the mail server should be double to 93583

Reset assigne to the default "email@example.com".

I reported this bug in 2009, I am surprised to see it hasn't been corrected. I resumed a newsletter maintenance role and discovered that it is still broken. Quite annoying. I have a workaround script to modify all single-letter domain names to add a space, which though an "invalid" address, is acceptable to the mail merge tool. For example firstname.lastname@example.org becomes abc@q .com and the mailer accepts it and properly sends it. Why not add such a line of code in the mailer, it may be easier than actually fixing the bug.
