    What is the name of the default New Mail Message template in Microsoft Outlook 2007? What is its default location?

    The default template is named NormalEmail.dotm and it is stored in your user templates folder. The default path of this folder depends on the Windows version; %appdata%\Microsoft\Templates should get you there in Windows Explorer regardless of the version.
    (Note: you need to display hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer to see the Application Data or AppData folder)

    Hans,

    Thanks. Your advice works for Word 2007, but not for Outlook 2007. The New Mail Message button is drawing its template from somewhere else, which I cannot find.

    Regards,
    Michael Hickey

    Sorry, can't help then. I don't have Office 2007 myself.

    If you have selected HTML format and default stationery other than blank stationery, we have a thread about the difficulty of tracking that down. I'm not sure we ever found it.
