Message template for form letters

Posted on 2000-03-08

Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I frequently send the same email over and over (ex, loading instructions.)  Is there a way to create a "form letter" so I don't have to retype or copy/paste the same thing constantly AND that I can edit as needed?

I tried saving the message as an "office template" but there doesn't seem to be a way of bringing that back up without having to go searching through 10 folder levels in win explorer (NOT a time-saver.)

Any ideas to automate this whole process?

Save the file as an office template, but save it to your desktop.  When you need it, just double-click the file.

Or change the template into a outlook form and publish it to your personal forms library.  Then go to new form and choose it when you need it
