I have a paragraph in a text file stored on my  harddisk that I need to repeatedly insert into emails.

Whats the best way of doing this ? Something better than open text file, copy and paste each time.

    Hi rohgan,

    Click Insert->File.  Select the file with the text in it, then click the downarrow on the Insert button and select "Insert as Text".

    Or a simple macro to add the text at the click of a button.

    Or even a dummy signature to insert the text via INSERT - SIGANTURE - SPECIAL TEXT
