Create a new email with the wording you want and save it to the desktop as an OFT file.
Then in the Rule, use templates from file system and locate your sample on the desktop.

when i go to the SAVE AS TYPE, .oft Outlook Template is not there.

only option with the word template in it, is Document Template (which did not work)

You could try saving the file as a DRAFT first, then opening the draft from within outlook, and THEN saving as an OFT. See if that works for you??  We had similar issues recently and I think this was the workaround we used when trying to save file as an OFT. Let me know how you get on?
