I use Outlook 2016 to write a lot of emails.

I am tired of typing always the first name or the last name of a person (Dear $firstname, Dear Mr./Mrs $lastname).

Word offers Fields as placeholders to use some meta data. Is there a similar option in Outlook 2016?

  • Isn't the Mail Merge option from Word a good option for your needs? – User552853 Nov 14 '17 at 10:14
  • No I want to answer emails using Outlook and not Word :) – tjati Nov 14 '17 at 11:42
  • You'll need to either write VBA macro for this or use third-party addin. – thims Nov 14 '17 at 13:42
