Permanent 'Drafts' in Outlook 2013

As I understand it, it is no longer possible to fool Outlook 2013 into keeping permanent drafts (which was possible using the trick of 'forward'-ing them previously).

In a new voluntary role that I now have, I have to send about a dozen very slightly different emails out once a month and ideally I would like to avoid having to create them every time.

Has anyone come up with a way of doing this type of thing in Outlook2013 without wrecking standard Outlook functionality.

You can use the Quick Parts feature to automatically insert predefined text into a new message
The only downside of this is that you can't add images/attachments.

You can also save a message as a Template (create message with to,cc,bcc, text etc, then 'file, save as, template') and use it when you create a new message by going to 'new items, choose form'

To be honest the method of getting to the templates is a bit of a drag but you can speed it up by putting choose form on the ribbon or creating yourself a macro.

Here's the MS instructional page

I appreciate the responses but these both sound like they are a bit tedious to operate.
Maybe I would be better off trying to find some code to create the emails automatically.

Thanks anyway.
