Sending the Same Message from Apple Mail (Mail.app)

Hello everyone,
I want to know if it was possible to save en email "template" from Apple Mail and use it over and over. In Microsoft Outlook, you can start typing a new email, click Save As, save the email to your desktop, and when you want to send it, you double click it and send. Then, the next time you want to send the same email (perhaps to a different person), all you do is double click, enter their email and send. I cannot find anything like this in Apple Mail. Is this possible?

Thanks!!

You should be able to do it by creating your email "template" and then going to File>Save as Stationery. You won't necessarily have the email on your desktop to double click, but all you have to do is open a new message, click the "Show Stationery" button and you're all set.

I've tried that, but all it does is saves the content of the message... it doesn't save the send from account or and of the To: or CC: fields.

Ahhh. Doing some quick fiddling, I wasn't able to find anything either. Even dragging a draft to your desktop yields no positive results.

Another thought is to use an automator action to do it for you. You should be able to make an action that sits on your desktop that, when double-clicked, will automatically open a new email and fill in all the relevant fields. Open Automator, choose Workflow, choose Mail from the sidebar, and then choose "New Mail Message". You can customize the message that way.

See my screenshot.

Works like a charm! JUST what I needed. Too bad Apple Mail doesn't have this functionality built in. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
