Default Distribution List- Mail merge

I am trying to send out mass emails- with a mail merge in outlook. This is
being done for the purpose of a survey. I need to put information the subject
line that individually pertains to that email address. The software for
survey works to BCC each email address, (Easy Survey), I just dont know how
to include any informaiton on the subject line. Is that possible? Thanks.

Default Distribution List- Mail merge

Is there any way to put a "comment" in the subject line with either a mail
merge or a dist list that would be distinct to that one email address?

No. You can merge data to the address field and the big white space, not
the subject field.
