Outlook Express users who regularly send uniquely formatted e-mails may find it useful to create an Outlook Express template. An Outlook Express template allows e-mail users to send multiple e-mails to different recipients while maintaining the same e-mail format. Outlook users can also modify templates to suit their preferences. Since Outlook Express does not have a specific command that allows users to create templates, users can make a template by creating an e-mail and then saving the email in the .eml file format.
