To Create a Template

  1. Choose Templates from the Options menu of the Mail Options dialog box.

    The Templates Options dialog box is displayed.

  2. Click the New Template button.

    A Compose window is displayed.

  3. Type the headers and template body.

  4. Choose Template from the Save As button menu at the bottom of the window, or from the Save As submenu of the File menu.

    The Mailer Save As Template dialog box is displayed.

  5. Type the template name in the text field, and click Save.

    The template is saved in the default directory HomeDirectory/MailTemplates. Its name and path are displayed in the Templates scrolling list.

    You can save an attachment as part of a template. Doing so is equivalent to copying the attachment there. Editing or moving the source of the attachment after it has been included in the template does not affect the attachment in the template.
