If I need to ask for certain items, I would like to be able to select from a "standard or template" email, in order to expedite the requesting of information.

How can I achieve this?

Thanks,
JP

How do I use that for when somone sends me an email.  I can't seem to choose a form / template for the reply message.

I could also use a signature, but that does not seem correct.

Thanks,

Well there's really no way to manually reply using a template; however, if you know that these emails you're receiving will contain certain words that other emails you receive will not contain, then you can set up a rule to automatically reply with a specific template (see screen shot). Otherwise, when you received an email you would just manually open the corresponding template and manually enter the sender's address as the recipient.

So far, using the message as a signature seems to be the only way to manually respond to emails, and use a specific starting point in the email.  Weird.

Yep, I'm not sure why Microsoft wouldn't include that functionality but it would seem they didn't. Another option is this 3rd-party add-in, but it's not free unfortunately.

Unfortunately the template only works for new emails and I am not sure that I can install 3rd party software w/out getting the IT guys involved.

Thanks,
