Go to Personal Options:
Click the Email Templates tab:
Click "New". Select the related entity for Email Type. Note: To use an email template to send Direct Mail, there must have an email field on the Entity record. In this example, I want to send an email to a Contact, which does have an email field. Change the Template Type from Global to Contract:
Click OK. Next, I want my greeting to be "Hi, Bob" ("Hi" plus the Contact's first name). To do this, I type "Hi " and leave my cursor where it is. I click on Insert/Update:
and select Add:
Next, select the Contact's First Name and click OK
The Contacts first name is inserted onto my email template. Repeat adding fields until you are finished. Click Save and Close.
Click OK to exit Personal Options.
