I used Mail as my main mail client on Snow Leopard. It would be really useful to manage mail templates with it. I used to send similar emails every day and I need to create 20 or 30 email templates to used whenever I need.

How can I accomplish with this?

By templates I think you mean canned messages. Here's a workaround (source):

  • Create a "Templates" folder.
  • Create and save a new draft message (including title).
  • Move the draft to "Templates" folder.
  • Whenever you need to use that template select a message and then choose Send Again from the Messages menu.
  • Make necessary modification and send.

I am unable to find an option for "Send Again." – user30326 Sep 19 '12 at 15:25
@SAP995: It's in the Message menu. Try Shift+Cmd+D. – george Oct 11 '12 at 14:38
