Email Templates

by rrao

Email templates are extremely useful for Sales, Support and SE or any one who constantly sends out the same email on a regular basis.

How to create Templates

This Zimlet uses existing emails(nothing special) as templates. So, to create templates, simply send few emails yourself. You can use generic names technique to replace common words. And just before inserting the template Zimlet will alert you to replace them.

For example: You could have "hi ${firstName}" in the body or in the subject.


Step by step getting started guide.




  1. After you have created few template emails, move all these emails to some central folder, say "Sales Templates".
  2. Set this folder as your templates repository by going to Preferences > "Set Templates Folder" button
  3. Refresh browser


How to use

With two clicks you can insert a Template of your choice. You can insert in three formats.


  1. Just the body of the template,
  2. Both body & subject
  3. Body, Subject & Participants.


Templates in Calendar

You can use any of these templates in Calendar. For example, you can create a template with Conference-call details. You don't have to search for those details anymore, Isn't that cool?

Sharing Templates with others in the team

Simply share your templates folder and ask your team members to point the Zimlets to this shared folder.



  1. Having attachments within templates is only supported in 6.0.8.
  2. And we don't support inline-attachments within templates

... Althoug could not test it, as using Admin GUI got an error - Zimlet could not be deployed. Is there any dependencies? Using ZCS OSS.

Downloading zimlet archive offers filename ending with ..._1.zip. Just renamed file without _1 and zimlet deployed. Great job!!! Really usefull.

There is an issue with the Gallery & is renaming the Zimlet file to com_zimbra_emailtemplates_1.zip and adding _0 or _1 to the end(instead of com_zimbra_emailtemplates.zip)

Please rename Zimlet file to com_zimbra_emailtemplates.zip

We are working on the Gallery issue.

I've been waiting for this feature for so long! Works like a charm. Thank you very much!

Would be great if one could insert the template at the current cursor position or if one could at least decide if the template get inserted before or after the current text. But I guess I will just add this feature myself..

When I press Tab key in replace dialog, the focus jumps between OK and Cancel buttons. It's expected to jump to the next input. Otherwise users will have to use their mouse to click into every input.http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=48580I reported this bug two weeks ago but hasn't got any response so far.
