If you figure out the modify/save route, let us all know! Thanks!

Here are some of my favorite sites for Outlook development -- but I do so
little that I don't make much use of them: 


Helen has a lot of great code samples but not much in the way of how-to
help. Slipstick and Helen are both available for hire, so if you can't do
it, you might recommend either or both to your client.

Hi Susan

Oh, I feel like an idiot but a have the small hope to not end up like that -
at least to the client - seems I can use all the luck I can get.

Yes, I can see and edit the code - it seems to live completely separated
from the template - it actually opens this and manipulates the content.

I'll try the copy and rename trick for the template.

Gustav, I've never figured out how to modify and save a template. I just
copy the original into a new one, change it and then save it using the
original name -- or not... 

The otm file is code. Can you see it and open it in the VBE? 

Good luck -- I hate Outlook development. It's the least documented and the
easiest to make you look and feel like an idiot.

Now, when opening Outlook, I have a Forms, UserForm1 form (seems empty) and
a Modules, Module1 module with some functions that seems relevant to the
