Saving master emails in Word to be used in Outook

I have switched to Outlook and Office 2013.  Ok, call me slow.  I have several email formats that I will use, weekly, sometimes more often.  

I developed each email in Outlook and subsequently cut and pasted them into word docs.  Unfortunately .doc and .docx change the email format installing margins, etc.

What format do I save the emails in Word to be edited and then cut and pasted into the next email.

Hi.

Would it not be more convenient for your situation to use an Outlook email template?  Create the standard email with the data in it that doesn't change much, then "Save As" and save as a template.

According to the documentation, for...
Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista
then,
c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\microsoft\templates
 is where the templates are saved.

If you need something else with Word for some reason, let us know.

Your were correct. It took me awhile and another EE question but I figured out how to save it as a template in Outlook.  The problem was opening up the template once it was saved.  Very difficult to do in Outlook.  Simple way is to just open the template in Explorer which of course then takes you right into Outlook.  Seems kind of a dumb way to do it but it works fine.  Thanks.

Hi Bill.

You know you can ask secondary questions here in your original thread if you like.  Usually no need to open another, but if it helped, that's great.

Please see this thread that is a little confusing because it has ads stuck into the middle of the post.  It explains using your outlook template.

http://www.extendoffice.com/documents/outlook/1114-outlook-create-template.html

As it says, you have to launch Outlook and when it opens,
File >  Options > then Customize Ribbon in the left column of dialogue box for options

Then the Customize Ribbon dialogue box appears with two columns.  The one on the left are the custom ribbon options from which you can choose, to add to the ribbon, and the right column is what you have currently decided to include in the ribbon.  Normal installations of Outlook leave off the Developer tab.  So here you look in the right column and check the checkbox to turn it on and it will then display in your menu tabs every time you launch Outlook.  Now when you are at the Outlook main screen, click the Developer tab on the ribbon, and you can click the button for Forms.  Also use the question mark in the upper right area for help on using Forms if you like.  If you have trouble please continue to post problems right here.
