I want to save a template email in Outlook 2002, but when I try to save it as a 'Document Template' it saves as a Word document.

I need this template saved as an .oft file as a macro I have used previously opens a .oft file, adds attachements, recipients, etc then send.

Can any tell me how I can save as a .oft or is there a work around?


Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

At your main outlook screen, click tools/options/mail format tab, then deselect the option to use Word as your editor. THEN reopen an email, and try the save option...you should then see the .oft option in the dropdown list. Good luck.
