I use Outlook 2002
I know how to save a message as a template.
But I failed so far to DISCOVER how on earth can I use them, how can I locate them from within Outlook. Shouldn't there be a folder, in the left pane folder list, for templates? how am I supposed to use them if they are not accessible from outlook interface?

is it in the text menu?

File, New, Choose Form! Make sure you are looking in the right area, probably in the User Templates in File System


Does that not allow you to select the new template you have?

It does, but I was looking for a shortcut.

Anyhow I found it. Here is how I did it, perhaps this saves some people's time:

--In Outlook, if Outlook bar is not showing, click: View > Outlook Bar
--In outlook bar, click: 'Other Shortcuts'. Then click 'My Computer' to browse to your templates folder location (I have mine created in D:/My Documents/My Outlook/Templates, to protect it in case I format C drive)
--In Outlook Bar, click: 'My Shortcuts', then, from the right pane, drag your 'Templates' folder and drop it 'My Shortcuts'

My Shortcuts is way much better view than 'Folder List' view. You can drag and drop only the folders you need from Folder List to My Shortcuts, then close folder list for good, to save space and reach what you want faster.
