Applying templates to messages Follow

Once you've created a few templates in your Outpost account, you can start applying them to your messages. Here are some useful things to know about templates:

  • You can combine templates with your own writing - in other words, the template won't replace any text you've already written in a message.
  • When you apply a template, it will appear where your cursor is currently placed in the message.
  • You can apply more than one template to the same message.
  • Once you've applied a template to a message, you can edit its text as needed.

Applying a template to a message

  1. Begin a new conversation, or a reply or forward.
  2. In the message you've started, you can access your saved templates by clicking the +Template link:

  3. The template selector will appear. You can scroll through your templates in the sidebar:

  4. At the top of the the sidebar, you'll see a pull-down menu. Templates created for your default mailbox will display first. You can select a different mailbox to see its templates instead, or select Unassigned to see all templates:

  5. You can also use the filter to locate templates that contain specific text:

  7. With the template in place, you can add text to the message and make edits as you prefer:

  8. You can add more templates to the same message. Just place your cursor where you'd like the next template to appear, and then click the +Template link again to select another one:

  9. Click Save & Close to save the message as a draft, or click Send to send it.
