    Good morning,
    I've been doing some research and can't seem to find an answer. I want to create an email template/form in Outlook 2003 but I want to have placeholders, or fill-in boxes, when I select this template. I send out a specific email nearly every day, where only a few sections change, and instead of typing the entire thing every day or just modifying a previously sent email, I would like to be able to open this template, fill in the spots, and hit send. Just for example, in the subject line when the template opens, I would like it to say "Good afternoon, [Name], today is [Date]." When [Name] or [Date] is clicked on, it turns into a slot you can fill in. Is there any way to make this happen? Preferrably without going into VBA :p Thanks in advance!

    Open a new message, type the contents you want in there, then within the message window, click "Save As" (instead of "Send"), and click the drop-down for file type, and choose the one for "Template", then give it a name and location (such as your desktop), then click "Save".

    Now, you just need to go to your desktop and click the template file, make a few changes, then click to send the message.
