Google's free e-mail client, GMail, now includes templates, or "canned responses." Google provides a list of pre-written e-mails in GMail that, when enabled, may be used instead of typing a response to an e-mail message. You can also create your own canned responses and save them as templates. When using a template, you can attach files to the email as attachments just as you would do if you were not using the template.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

    Click the "Settings" option in the upper right corner of the GMail interface. Click the tab labelled "Labs."

    Click the "Enable" option next to the "Canned Responses" entry.
