Do a similar thing with the feature called Quick Parts. Here is the 43 second video I made to show you.  http://bit.ly/128Bmiz 

You’ll find Quick Parts when you click open a new email. On the Insert tab, in the Text Pane group, click Quick Parts.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create a quick part
Open and type out what you would like to save in an email. On the Insert tab, in the Text group, click Quick Parts. Click Save Selection to Quick Part Gallery.

After you save your content to the Quick Part Gallery, you can reuse it over and over and over again.

P. S. Gmail has something in the pipeline
