What Are Yahoo Email Templates and Why To Use Them?
Many of us encounter emails that involve similar processes or responses. This is exactly why email templates exist — they are pre-formatted messages that we can quickly access and use to save time with our digital correspondence.
We can use email templates for everything from answering frequently asked questions about products we sell to an Out-of-office email template you use every time you take a vacation. In fact, you can also create a more generalized Yahoo email template that includes links to items you commonly share or placeholders for data you collect.
Regardless of their exact purpose, a professional email template helps you save time since you aren’t reinventing the wheel every time you send a message to someone. They also help keep your message formatting consistent and visually appealing, which can be important in any sort of professional setting.
How To Create a Template Email in Yahoo
If you’ve spent any amount of time using Yahoo Mail, then you know it offers lots of great settings and features. You can use many of these features to customize Yahoo to meet your needs. However, learning how to create an email template in Yahoo Mail is very different than learning how to create email templates in Outlook.
💡 Note: Unfortunately, Yahoo doesn’t offer traditional email templates in the way Outlook and Gmail do. Instead, you have to improvise a bit to get the same result.
However, you can follow these steps to learn how to set up email template in Yahoo Mail.
How To Use Email Template In Yahoo Mail
Now that you know how to create an email template in Yahoo Mail, you’ll need to learn how to use the Yahoo email template you created. As you can imagine, this process is a bit different than using email templates in Gmail since Yahoo doesn’t give you a way to save and access templates. However, you can easily recall any templates you created and saved as explained above, then use them as often as you’d like.
To use the email template you created on the web or mobile, simply:
- Open Yahoo and open the Templates folder.
- Open the template message you'd like to use.
- Copy the text in the body of the message.
💡 Note: You can't just use the message in the templates folder since it's one you sent to yourself.
- Navigate back to the inbox and press Compose to start a new message.
- Paste the text from the template into the body of the message.
- Make any changes you'd like to the text, then add a subject line and address(es).
- Press Send when you're done.
How To Delete a Yahoo Email Template
Since the Yahoo email templates you created is simply a message saved in a dedicated folder, it’s incredibly easy to delete a Yahoo email template you no longer need. Essentially, you will delete the template just like you would delete a message you no longer want in your mailbox.

- Open Yahoo Mail and select the Templates folder you created to store your templates.
- Select any message(s) you want to delete by checking the box on the left of the sender’s name (web) or clicking the circular logo to the left of the message info (mobile).

Master Yahoo Mail Management With Clean Email
As you have gathered, sometimes Yahoo Mail doesn’t offer the most user-friendly options in terms of inbox management and efficiency. Luckily, Clean Email is here to help you organize messages, clear away clutter, and make mailbox management simpler than ever regardless of whether you’ve learned how to use Yahoo or not.
Clean Email isn’t an email client, so it cannot help you create an email template. However, it is a feature-filled mailbox management tool that works with most major mail providers that use IMAP, including AOL, Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Outlook, and more.
For example, the app offers several tools that can help you avoid spam messages so you spend less time sifting through unnecessary messages. Unsubscriber prevents promotional emails and newsletter messages from cluttering your mailbox.
The tool does this by breaking down messages based on the domains who send them, then allowing you to select whether you want to unsubscribe, move to a dedicated Read Later folder, or pause subscription-based messages.
Similarly, the Screener tool places messages from unknown senders into a quarantine folder until you can look through them and determine if they are spam or should in fact be in your inbox.
You can also use email groups or Clean Email’s filtering options to sort messages based on the criteria you’d like. This helps you check similar messages all in one sitting so you can save time. It also helps you move messages or place them in dedicated folders so you can go through them when you have time.
Additionally, Clean Email offers tools that automate tasks for you. For instance, Auto Clean is a tool that lets you program automation rules based on tasks you perform within the Clean Email app.
These automations can save you time later, especially if you program Auto Clean to sort messages or delete them for you automatically.
Similarly, the new Sender Settings feature lets you automatically remove messages from a specific sender so they aren’t cluttering your inbox or costing you hours of time finding and deleting them.
Clean Email can be used on the web, or through the apps for macOS, Android, and iOS.
