    Like a body of a letter for example where the form asks 2 questions and then mails itself.

    Did you have something like this in mind:

    You can do that by creating address fields with text field:

    And you insert one Text field with fields which values you want to show:

    That is helpful, but actually it is the static text the letter body that I want to insert an leave in place as text which cant be modified. When I use the text option, it doenst print out in the response.

    Yes, the text element itself will not display the variables, you will need to get the fields names and use them in the text element in order to get their values. 

    Here's a guide with detailed information about how to achieve it: https://www.jotform.com/help/418-Pass-an-Input-Field-to-a-Text-Field 

    I hope this helps.
