Save As Outlook Template is not available

We're trying to create a template, but when we do File / Save As, the Outlook Template type is not one of the options.  I don't see anywhere to turn this on or off... Any suggestions?

Greetings, clbrownjr !

Here is how to create and save an Outlook template. You cannot create an Outlook template if you are using Microsoft Office Word as your e-mail editor. To make sure you are not using Word as your e-mail editor, follow these steps:

   1. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
   2. Clear the check box next to Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages.
   3. Click Apply, and then click OK.

Create a mail template

   1. In Outlook, on the File menu, point to New, and then click Mail Message.

      Note  You can also start a new message by clicking the New Mail Message button Button image on the Standard toolbar.
   2. When the new message opens, give it an appropriate subject and compose your content. Leave space for personalized information that you'll add when you send the message to a particular recipient.
   3. On the File menu, click Save As.
   4. In the Save as type list, select Outlook Template, and then click Save
   5. Close the message that you used to create your template. If you are prompted to save the message, click No.

Now that you've created your e-mail template, you can restore Word as your message editor:

   1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
   2. Select the check box next to Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages.
   3. Click Apply, and then click OK.
