You can use email templates to send messages with information that changes infrequently or slightly from message to message. 

For example, you might want to send a work resume as an email message. You can save the résumé as an email template that is ready to send quickly whenever necessary. Changes or new information can be added right before you send the template as an email message.

Outlook doesn't have a built-in résumé template, but (as described below) you can borrow a template from Word, save it in Outlook, and then customize it with your personal information.

Copy a template from Word

  1. In Word, go to File > New, then enter resume in the search box.

  2. Choose a résumé template you like, then select Create.

  3. Select all the content in the template, then switch to Outlook.

Create an Outlook email template

  1. In Outlook, in Mail, create a new email message and paste your résumé content into the body of the message.

  2. Select File > Save As, then name your file.

  3. Set Save as type to Outlook Template.

Add your personal info to the résumé 

  1. On the Home tab, select New Items > More Items > Choose Form.

  2. Set Look in to User Templates in File System.

  3. Locate and select the template you created earlier, then choose Open.

  4. Customize the template with content about yourself.

  5. Add recipients to the message, then select Send.
