Insider Fast: Email Template is now available!

We are excited to release a new feature, Email Template, which is one of the top requests on our UserVoice site.

This new feature requires Office 365 Subscription and will be available in Insider Fast update starting today (version 15.34.170411+).


How to use templates?
You can save an email message as an email template...


Save As File menu


...and create new emails from a saved template:


Email From Template in File menu

or just open the template from file system:


Template in Finder


How to modify a template?
Simply create a new email from template, and save the email by choosing "Save As Template..." to replace existing template.


Can I open Outlook for Mac template with Outlook for Windows, and vice versa?
Yes, but not directly due to the difference in formats (Outlook for Windows uses .oft and Outlook for Mac uses .emltpl).
You can follow these steps to convert templates from Outlook for Mac to Outlook for Windows (and similarly from Windows to Mac):
1. Open the saved template in Outlook for Mac
2. Save the template as a draft in Outlook for Mac
3. Sync the draft to the server, and then open the draft in Outlook for Windows
4. Save the draft email as template in Outlook for Windows
