The one in the Templates folder.
The one in the Program Files folder might have been used by your 
IT-department when deploying Office.

I know that, because I connect the NormalEmail.dotm in the different folders  
with different designs (color & font).
 

My Outlook on the laptop - that with the Normalemail.dotm takes the dotm 
form the Programs folder and not from the templates folders.

And another goog thing: Its very easy  to  store Building Blocks in it: make 
a connection to the Word /Startup folder. this is not possibel with the 
normalemail.dotm in the templates folder.

sorry about my bad english

If you remove it from the Program Files folder, then it will use your 
Templates folder. The system is explained in the KB article VanguardLH 
provided;
