At work we get many emails that could be responded with a template. It's evident that you can save a lot of time if there's a template you can send. This sample shows how that works. You can either reply to the opened email or to the selected one in the folder.
The following first function determines the subject and the message. The main function that will create the reply will be called with these values. If you want to use several templates this way, simply copy the Reply_1 function, and give each function any unique name.
(There is a similar function that uses templates stored in the Drafts folder)
Public Sub Reply_1() Dim Subject As String, Msg As String Subject = "Re: " Msg = "Sample Message 1" ReplyMail Subject, Msg End Sub

The following function is necessary only once. This one creates the reply with the passed values for the subject and the message.
Private Sub ReplyMail(Subject As String, Msg As String) Dim obj As Object Dim oReply As Outlook.MailItem If TypeOf Application.ActiveWindow Is Outlook.Inspector Then Set obj = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem Else With Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection If .Count Then Set obj = .Item(1) End If End With End If If obj Is Nothing Then Exit Sub If TypeOf obj Is Outlook.MailItem Then Set oReply = obj.Reply If InStr(1, oReply.Subject, Subject, vbTextCompare) = 0 Then oReply.Subject = Subject & obj.Subject oReply.Body = Msg & vbCRLF & vbCRLF & oReply.Body End If oReply.Display End If End Sub
