Outlook 2010 While You Were Out Template

    Question

  • I have downloaded the "While You Were Out" template and added it to my Outlook 2010. However it shows up along the right side as if it were another email account, and I'm unable to access the template at all. The instructions for Outlook 2003 and 2007 users mention "publishing" it to their Outlook, but I cannot find anything similar to this in Outlook 2010. Please help! Thanks!

    Since you have downloaded “While You Were Out” template for Word 2010 document, we could load it into Outlook 2010 by following steps:

    1. Create a new message, copy and pasted Word document into it
    2. File – Save as – dropdown list of Save as type, choice Outlook Template
    Note: If the format is not correct, please adjust it first and then save it again.
    3. Just double-click the template if you want to use it.

    Hope this helps.

  • I just downloaded this and it's just a Word 2010 document. I'd like to have some sort of template that doesn't require being copy and pasted into an email every time I take a phone message for someone. Is there a way to load this into Outlook 2010 as a form instead? Thanks!

  • Tony, your download does not work. It states "This webpage is unavailable".

    And, the Word template put into the Outlook templates still has you open it and save before sending.

    The Outlook form is indeed no longer available (it was actually a form designed for Outlook 97).

    As for the Word document solution; Don't copy the Word document itself into a new message as an attachment but the copy content of that Word document and paste it as the body text in a new Outlook message and then save it in your Drafts folder or as an oft-file.
