How to Create Custom Email Templates in KMail

"Many Internet users have turned to web-based email and use it as their primary means of electronic communication. Some corporations have even adopted “cloud computing” solutions, where their email delivery and retrieval is handled by an outside company. Nevertheless, there are many reasons why a user might still prefer a traditional email client. Because of that, even the aforementioned web-based email services often still offer POP3 and/or IMAP service.

"KMail, KDE’s email client, is a robust and still very popular choice for those who still prefer to have their emails on their desktop, even when they are offline. It is part of the Kontact PIM (Personal Information Management) suite and offers many useful and unique features. Among those features is the ability to create advanced email templates.

"Business and organizations in particular will find this feature beneficial. For example, suppose your business receives online orders, and you need to send custom replies to each customer. Most of the emails you send will contain identical information, but the name and other contact information needs to be different. KMail allows you to create such templates and even program KMail to use them in certain situations."
