Using Stationery

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


If you want to make your e-mail messages look more than normal, you can use stationary.  Stationery inserts an image in the background.  Actually, what it is really doing is sending the e-mail as an HTML file and adding the text you type into the file.  Many e-mail programs let you receive HTML mail.  If the recipient doesn't accept HTML messages, they will have to sort through HTML code to read your message.  (which can be a pain if you aren't a programmer who understands HTML.)

Using Stationery

1.  Click the Tools menu and click Options from the menu that appears.

2.  Click the Mail Format tab.

3.  Click the down-arrow next to the Sent in this message format: drop-down menu.  

4.  Click on HTML.

Note:  Since you have now selected to send mail in HTML, all your mail will be sent as HTML.  If you don't think a recipient's e-mail software can accept HTML mail, be sure to go back and turn this option off.

5.  Click the Stationery Picker... button.

6.  From the list of stationery on the dialog that appears, select the stationery you would like to use.

7.  Click the OK button.

8.  Click the OK button in the next dialog.

9.  Now, when you send mail, the Stationery will automatically be on the message and you just add text.
