Email forms in Outlook are templates that include a preselected set of features. This is particularly useful if you send out newsletters, information forms or other types of emails that contain similar information in each field. In Outlook 2010, the Forms field is hidden by default and is included in the Developer ribbon. Once enabled, you will be able to send emails using your forms.
