    Hi Everybody,

    Does anybody know how to create a template in Outlook Express? I know that Netscape Messenger had this option. Basically, I just need to have a copy of a message that I created, that I can call up any time and change the recipients, and then send. I've tried saving a copy of the e-mail in drafts, but when I call it up, it ends up sending my only copy (the one residing in my Drafts folder).

    :confused:

    I'd appreciate any help.
    Thanks,

    Columbo

    Sorry! :eek:

    I figured out a way to do it, and I tried to delete this post but it wouldn't let me.

    :rolleyes:

    Sorry,

    Maybe I should share. :p

    I didn't find a way to create or access a template within Outlook Express. What I did is just create a message, then saved it to my desktop. Now it's sitting on my desktop as *.eml. This way, I can just double-click it, and it opens right up. Then I just throw in the recipient's addresses, and hit send. It sends a copy of the message, without removing the message from my desktop.
    I know that this is pretty simple, but hey, whatever works, right?

    :)

    Thats the only way in OE... "save as" the message to a file folder or desktop.
