    An add-in might be simplest if it is flexible enough to meet your needs and can accurately fetch the sender's name without triggering security alarms. Most macro solutions will cause annoying warnings, as well as requiring some dexterity with Outlook forms or templates to customize the "generic" message. (No one really wants to receive a completely generic message. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> )

    If you are using Word as your email editor, you could use the quick correct feature. Here is a link to how to use it: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistan...0347911033.aspx
    As an example, you could create a quick correct entry named "reporder" (no quotes) and when you type reporder, quick correct replaces it with "thank you for your order, we'll be processing this as soon as possible", etc. You just need to make sure that whatever entry you create is not a real word. If you named the entry "order" then everytime you typed the word order, it would be replaced with your phrase.

    I know of no other way to accomplish what you are trying to do other than using this workaround if you use Word as your email editor.

    Without Word as the editor, I have used "signatures" for this type of thing. Create a signature called reorder. Start your email, click on Insert, Signature, select reorder and there is your generic text which can be customized before sending.

    Another option is to set up email templates. Set up the email and do a Save As, and choose Outlook template as the type - or - Tools, Publish Form As ... One advantage to doing the form is that is can be published to the Organizational Forms library so multiple people can access the same forms which can include logos, links, formatting etc. (You may need to talk with you Exchange Admin about permissions to the Organizational forms library - or to create one)

    If using forms, you can use a macro like below to call the form and assign the macro to a button (Tools, customize). In this macro, my form is PhoneMessage. The form name is what you need to use in strMessageClass = "IPM.Note.PhoneMessage"

    Sub NewPhoneMessage()

    Dim objApp As Application
    Dim objNS As NameSpace
    Dim objFolder As MAPIFolder
    Dim objItms As Items
    Dim objItm As MailItem


    Dim strMessageClass As String

    strMessageClass = "IPM.Note.PhoneMessage"

    Set objApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set objNS = objApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set objFolder = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    Set objItms = objFolder.Items
    Set objItm = objItms.Add(strMessageClass)
    objItm.Display

    End Sub
