There is a great tool called 'canned response' at Gmail but how can I make it produce responses that are customised?

Sample template I want to create:


Thank you blah-blah-blah...

(<-put cursor here)

Please find this attached.

Does Gmail have macro definitions and do the canned responses allow for attachments?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

It's not really that sophisticated. – Al E. Mar 31 '11 at 22:23
It is still a Labs feature, though, so I'd suggest sending feedback to get that sort of functionality added. mail.google.com/support/bin/… – Al E. Mar 31 '11 at 22:32

This feature isn't available in the canned responses lab.
