Is there a way to store the 'Subject:' text and the body text so that I can send a frequently sent message from time-to-time? Ideally, I'd like a new message to pop up with the subject and body already filled in with these texts so that all I have to do is enter the recipient's email address. Is this possible?

Hi stanjan

I think this link will cover what you are wanting to do, create a distribution list and a template for emails...

I tried the Draft feature, but that didn't do what I want; it just saved one particular message. The template idea is new to me and looks to be what I need. Thanks for all your help and the fast response.

Hey there Spanky,

I tried to do a template using that link you sent. Unfortunately, it doesn't apply to Outlook Express. I did some more looking around and found out that the message template feature is not available in Outlook Express. Why do they do that! Very frustrating.

The only work-around I can think of is to send myself the message and then keep it in the Sent folder, click it as if to forward, remove the Fw: from the subject line and enter the new recipients address. Crude, but it seems like it'll work.

Stanjan:

I think you confused both of us when you posted in the Microsoft Office forum.. OE is NOT a part of Office.. Microsoft Outlook is a part of Office thus the fixes/template option for Outlook!!

OE is a stipped down version of Outlook, don't expect it to run like Outlook or have some of the features that is available with Outlook. :tazz:

Well, that goes to show you how much I know. Some time ago I was led to believe that OE was the enhanced version. I've been working in ignorance all this time. Time to reinstall Outlook 2000. Thanks for straightening this out for me.
