What are OFT files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening an OFT file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is an OFT file?
An .OFT file is an Outlook Form Template file.
Microsoft Outlook's ".oft" file format provides users with a streamlined approach to emailing. It lets them quickly create reusable templates, so they don't have to build emails from scratch every time. These templates store the text, formatting, and attachments of an email message.
That way, only the necessary information needs changing with each new message. This can help individuals or businesses save time when sending repetitive messages like marketing materials, newsletters and invoices. Moreover, it reduces the chance of errors in multiple drafts by accessing the same resources.
Using Outlook's ".oft" files also allows for greater consistency across emails as it allows teams to easily standardize their communications for a unified brand image.
