How can I use a STANDARD HTML MESSAGE I have created?


I've created a Standard Message I want to use in the Body of an HTML Email Message.  Is there some way to set that up as a Template that I can just open and use whenever I like?

Yes, you can create a template from the HTML message that you have created.

You cannot create a template if you are using MS Word as editor. So disable MS Word as editor.

Best wishes!

war1 nailed the "how to create a template" but just a hint that I use myself...

When you want to create a new message, it's kinda lame to have to go to tools, forms, choose form, look in, user templates, open, etc...

What I do is just save the .oft file to my desktop, and when I want to write a message, I double-click it.  

Points should go to war1 for answering your question, just wanted to make it a bit easier to actually *use* the template you create.

Good luck.

Greetings, MitchellVII.

There are a couple of other alternatives to doing this.  One, you can save the message as stationery and then create a message based on that stationery by clicking Actions->New Mail Messages Using->More Stationery and then selecting this particular stationery.  If you use this same message frequently and don't want to have to go though all those clicks, then you can hook the action to a toolbar button.  Two, use a simple macro to create the message and insert the text automatically.  If either of these solutions sound like something you'd like to pursue, then I'll be happy to provide specific instructions and any necessary code.
