Well it turns out Evolution does have a template feature in version 2.26.1. Here are the steps to create the templates:
- Create a new e-mail.
- Give it a Subject (this is also the name of the template.)
- Modify the body of the e-mail, include and special signatures. fig 1
- From the menu bar, click File, Save As Template. fig 2
In your folder lists located in the left windows panel, you will see the folder Templates. That folder may have been there before, I’m not sure and I don’t remember. fig 3 In the Templates folder you will see the template e-mail you created. fig 4
Now you can right-click an e-mail and respond with a template you designed! fig 5 You can double click the template from the Templates folder and send a new message without it removing the message from the Templates folder. fig 1
