Is there an easy way to pre-fill the email on all types of actions (new, reply, forward)? When I say easy, I mean not being harder than doing a new / reply at this point.

E.g. I use a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+M now to open a new email dialog. Instead of having a blank mail, I'd like (at least body) to be pre-filled with some text.

I saw some ways to do it, such as:

however they are more a workaround than a solution, as they add other steps to the workflow, making it considerably more complex.


Start filling out an email and save it as a template (.oft) then pin the template to the task bar. Now when you want to reply and use a certain response right click on outlook ( on the taskbar ) and select the template you want to use.
