Insert Placeholders into your Message Templates, such as the recipient’s name and the sender’s details, which get automatically filled out when you insert your template into an email. 

Mailbutler's Placeholders take information from various sources. Your email client, if you've sent an email to the person before, or the Mailbutler Contacts feature. Your own information comes from your Mailbutler profile information.
