Needing some help to figure out how I can set outlook 2007 up to do some autofilling for me. I have to send multiple emails back to same people each day saying we’ve acknowledged their transmittals.
When the persons email is entered into the recipients box it will autofill the subject line and the body of the email.
To: firstname.lastname@example.org(I enter just this then everything else is done for me)
Subject: Transmittal Acknowledgement xxxxxx
Please find attached signed transmittal xxx
doesn't excel do this kind of thing for you? (similar to mail merge)
Trog, being in massive construction company I am nailed to outlook.
Clubby, i've done all that.
hardware, isn't that the same thing as clubby mentioned?
I've done the template up but all I need it to do now is have everything filled just by typing in the persons email.
edit: Just tried it and so far it's quicker than the old way. I'm just clicking the drop down arrow under new then selecting form and the template I created. But would still be nicer and faster if I can somehow get it going the other way.

Lotus notes can do it :P
Yeah not sure you are going to have much luck other than a template as Outlook is pretty restrictive in customizing thins like this.
Has helped heaps.
Can I set up a new toolbar where I can select 1 of the templates and it pops up with a new email message rather than clicking on the dropdown box under new then select forms then find the template.
Got that sorted now i'm getting a microsoft office outlooked security notice saying this location of file could be unsafe and am I sure I want to open the file.
These things are never easy!
I'm there as we speak but it wont stop appearing. I don't want to have to edit the registry to get my way since it's a work pc.
What version of Outlook?
Predefined trusted locations

Hermi, I'm using office 2007.
Later versions of Outlook have a section that deals with Problematic Access.
As you're using 2007 I'd place the form/file in the above location and see how that goes?
Will do mate, I'll try it on monday as I have an RDO tomorrow.
Could you do this server side in exchange??
Why are you sending 3 kisses to this George fella? Didn't know you were a poof!!!
wouldn't this just be a read receipt?
