If you frequently start new messages by typing the same thing again and again, you can save time by creating a template. To create a template:

  1. Create a folder called Templates (make sure you type it in exactly like that, including the capital T).
  2. Compose a new message and type/format the content you want to be in your template. Save this as a draft.
  3. Go to the Drafts folder and move the draft you just created to your Templates folder.

To start a new message from that template, go to your Templates folder and open the message. The compose screen will now open with the message just as it was when you saved it as a draft. When you save or send it, the original template is untouched, ready to be used again.

Please note that once the Templates folder has been created, it is considered a system folder, much like Inbox, Drafts, Trash, etc. This means it cannot be deleted later.
