How to write an individual letter to a contact

I want to create a general letter template that allows me to sent individual letters to contacts. Meaning the template has a standard header and footer and uses the address of the contact but the text of the letter can be created individually by the OpenERP user before printing the letter and sending it by mail.

My general problem in creating such a template is that the printable templates (reports) are generated as an PDF file that I can not edit before printing.

Just change the report type to "odt". OpenERP generates and .swx that you can open and edit with OpenOffice.
